John Parsons is an Internet Safety and Risk Assessment Consultant who delivers cyber security training workshops to the Private Sectors, Government sector agencies including New Zealand
Police and Oranga Tamariki. Delivering workshops to increase protection against Internet-based threats to their information systems, related business assets, personnel and clients. Many of the issues organisations are dealing with in relation to data loss and data exposure are due to human error and not solely the failings of IT security systems.
Today’s business perimeter stretches into the employee’s home, as the office space has become mobile. Creating operational standards that are referenced in policy, used daily and maintained through regular workshops will greatly reduce many of the negative situations that organisations experience due to human failings. Sensible cyber security practice requires organisations to be proactive when considering cyber security inside and outside of the business perimeter. No longer can CEOs and directors focus only on the internal processes that a business uses to deliver its product or service to market.
These workshops help organisations and the general public better understand and prepare for the latest security risks and emerging threats.
Subjects include: Human defence in-depth education, target hardening, data security, threat modelling and social engineering.
John works with organisations in the following areas:
Incident response and prevention planning
