Who made it to the 2015 CIO 100?

Russell Jones, ASB: 'Rather than just thinking we were in financial services, we started to think about what would happen if we considered ourselves a technology company that is licensed and trusted to provide financial services.'

Tracy Voice, Ministry for Primary Industries: 'The IT team supports the organisation's objectives by providing the systems that enable the business to improve mobility and efficiency.'

The State of Global Information Security 2016: NZ edition

The convergence of digital and cybersecurity

The 2016 Global Information Security Survey presents critical insights for New Zealand organisations, as emerging technologies and risk frameworks become key components of cybersecurity.

Adrian van Hest of PwC: 'If you are a digital business, your customers are a click away from your competitor.'

David Kennedy: 'When creating a digital strategy, organisations must exert the same amount of effort on the security as on any other part of the strategy.'

Simon Arcus of Institute of Directors: 'Put cybersecurity on the agenda, make sure it is up there, get boards to understand they don’t need to know the detail of the technology.'

Bradley de Souza: 'Focus on securing and hardening services has never been stronger but the weakest link still remains the end-user and how people manage and maintain their accounts.'
