Glen is a specialist and leader in the Australian IT community and has been widely recognised for services to information security, governance, risk management and compliance.
His career began within Australian intelligence and law enforcement research communities, where he led a group of local analysts working on telecommunications and cryptographic challenges of the time.
This group was part of a global virtual team, which succeeded in solving previously untenable challenges. In 1998 Glen was acknowledged by the US National Security Agency and issued an award for his groundbreaking services to the field.
Glen has been an active member of a number of Australian whole of government committees relating to identity and authentication and continues to contribute through the Gatekeeper Policy Committee for PKI.
He has spoken at a range of major information security related conferences and has delivered post-graduate courses on Cybercrime and IT Compliance through Australian Universities.
Glen’s speciality focus area relates to highly sensitive information environments, such as those within the Defence Intelligence and Security community and other key Commonwealth Government Departments and Agencies.
He also draws upon these highly advanced information security methods to assist a range of private sector organisations seeking to protect intellectual property and competitive advantage.
This has become especially critical in recent years as the threat of economic cyber-espionage has scaled upwards dramatically.
