Scott Ainslie Regional Director of Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) speaks about ‘Strength through collaboration’ at the 2017 CISO Leaders Summit in Melbourne.
Regional Director of the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) presented at the 2017 CISO Leaders Summit in Melbourne. His workshop presentation focused on the need to share and collaborate as the only way that a CISO can be prepared against cyber-attack. This is reflected by the global strength of FS-ISAC and its growing relationship with intelligence communities and law enforcement. The CISO appointment is now more challenged than ever before and represents an enormous challenge for those who prefer isolation to collaboration.
Scott has served in a wide variety of roles across a career distinguished by the breadth and depth of its exposure to the modern information technology security risk environment. Scott has developed a broad knowledge of regulatory compliance and key control requirements specific to the governance of information security across diverse and complex enterprise environments. He recently joined the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) as the Regional Director for Australia and New Zealand. FS-ISAC is a not-for-profit information sharing community supporting the global financial sector and with over 7,000 members globally represents the world’s largest threat intelligence sharing and collaboration organisation.
His primary goal is to facilitate the development of the Australian and New Zealand cyber and physical intelligence sharing communities, and to support the planning and implementation of the FS-ISAC International Growth Strategy. This role includes engaging with existing and potential members at a ‘C level’, to determine their information security risks and the measures necessary to mitigate any discovered exposure. His frank and personable style aims to encourage and facilitate member and business partner capabilities providing positive outcomes that promote business synergy through collective and collaborative security.
Scott is a member of multiple security, risk, intelligence, and information security industry related organisations both in Australia and overseas. His active membership in these wide-ranging communities provides an ideal platform for applying a multi-domain risk based approach to cyber security management across industry and government sectors. A noted and entertaining speaker, he often presents to the global intelligence and information security community on issues of threat management and cybersecurity.
