Jamie is Assistant Commissioner and Chief Information Security Officer for the Australian Taxation Office, responsible for delivering the foundation for trust and confidence in the ATO’s digital services. He leads the ATO’s Security Governance and Security Operations teams, including Cyber Security Operations Centre and Digital Forensics across Australia.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the security industry across Australia, Asia and Europe, Jamie understands that organisations are under increasing threat from malicious actors, particularly as a result of exponential growth in digital services and digital transformation, which alters the modern attack surface. His focus is on helping organisations measure and improve cyber maturity, while gaining better “situational awareness” and insight into security posture.
Jamie has extensive private sector experience working in leadership roles across many well-known security companies including Check Point, Tenable and VeriSign. He was also inaugural CISO for the World Health Organization (WHO) where he developed the governance framework for the WHO’s cyber security program.
Jamie sits on a number of boards and committees as a security expert, including oversight of the global CISM certification for ISACA. He currently holds CISA, CISM, CISSP and CGEIT certifications together with degrees in Commerce (Accounting) and IT (Software Engineering) from the Australian National University.
