Kate is the Head of Security and Privacy Knowledge Management and with nearly five years at nbn under her belt, a bit of a veteran.
Kate’s 'always-on' enthusiasm for information security and privacy has taken her all over the globe, bringing to nbn a wealth of experience from former roles at top-tier technology companies Microsoft and Symantec.
As part of the nbn Senior Leadership Team, Kate is responsible for running both the Privacy team and the Security Education and Awareness team. Kate is also the President of the iappANZ (International Association of Privacy Professionals), the pre-eminent body for privacy professionals, having been appointed to the top role after serving three years as a board director.
Kate holds a double honours degree in German and Philosophy from the University of Leeds (but is slowly getting the hang of speaking ‘Australian’ after migrating from the UK!)
