Tom is a member of AISA, the Australian Information Security Association and BECCA, the Business Espionage Controls and Countermeasures Association. He has over 20 years experience in many different disciplines of IT. In his spare time, he practices a martial art called aikido and speaks to schools, business and universities about how to stay safe online, the art of social engineering and the advances in data analytics.
