Andrew Hood

Chief Advisor Cyber Security

Ministry of Education - Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga

Next Appearing at:

Andrew started out on the internet over 30 years ago and in that time has worked globally on internet services and cyber security from small start-ups to large governments and multinational businesses. Now working as Chief Advisor on Cyber Security at Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga in the Cyber Security team, his aim is to help lift the cyber security maturity of every school and kura in New Zealand. In recent times he has seen nearly every type of attack, phish, scam and hack so understands why schools are targets for the likes of cyber criminals and student hackers. A regular speaker at IT and Cyber events, Andrew loves to engage non-technical people in the world of Cyber so they can better protect themselves, their whanau and organisations from the reality of cyber threats. Outside of work, Andrew enjoys cycling, sewing, cooking and refereeing his kids under-11 football, but not at the same time.
