Fairman joins Paraflare board

By

Former NAB CSO David Fairman has joined the board of cyber security company ParaFlare.

ParaFlare CEO Adam McCarthy welcomed Fairman to the board, saying "As cyber threats continue to increase, so too will the pressure on business leaders who need to make smart choices about their cyber security. The risk of getting it wrong will be extremely costly. David understands this first-hand and knows how to articulate cyber threats in a way that resonates with board members and executives."

Fairman is currently Netskope's Asia Pacific CSO, a partner and CISO-in-residence at SixThirty Ventures, and an adjunct professor at Deakin University.

Additionally, he sits on the advisory boards of ClearSky, Glilot Capital Ventures, Cyberstarts, and Digital Shadows.

Fairman previously worked as CSO of National Australia Bank, group CISO at the Royal Bank of Canada and held various security leadership roles at JP Morgan Chase and the Royal Bank of Scotland.

Earlier in his career he worked in security and data communications at Telecom New Zealand, Dimension Data, Duke Energy, and Mincom.

"ParaFlare is an Australian company dedicated to active cyber defence, which is all about hunting and eliminating cyber security threats on a network. I'm excited to bring my knowledge and experience to the Board of a great sovereign cyber company," said Fairman.

"This will be a challenging year for businesses as threat actors continue to employ a range of traditional and more sophisticated tools and tactics, including deep fakes, social engineering attacks, and political influence. We need to think about what that means long term, including tactics designed to destabilise the internal culture of organisations and drive a divide in society."
