David is an information & cyber security leader who is passionate about helping organisations create resilient digital environments and thriving security cultures across their digital lives.

As Kiwibank’s CISO & Head of Tech Op Risk & Compliance, David’s work helps to secure New Zealand’s largest domestic bank in one of cybercrime’s most targeted industries around the world. Success depends on innovation, collaboration, and a thriving security-conscious culture across the breadth of the organisation.
