Australian OT cyber security provider Secolve has appointed an advisory board comprising Energy Australia CISO Catherine Buhler, former PepsiCo and Oil Search CIO Jackie Montado, Seqwater head of cyber security Patrick Dunstan and former TasNetworks CISO Steve Mason.

Secolve founder and CEO Laith Shahin said each appointee contributed a unique perspective and lived experience in the cyber security and OT space.

"I am delighted to be partnering with a team of specialists so highly esteemed within the cyber and OT security sectors, and who have such extensive hands-on experience in their respective industries," he said.

"The OT security landscape is constantly evolving, and we are proud to have been able to harness the best minds in the business to ensure our clients can stay one step ahead of threat actors and mitigate against adverse outcomes in case of attack."

Shahin said the diversity of the board would also assist clients with regulatory compliance requirements, particularly energy sector clients navigating AESCSF complexities.

"Our world is more technologically reliant than ever before and it is essential that we develop and operationalise cyber security solutions to protect our businesses, their customers, and employees. I am very excited about joining the Secolve advisory board and support its important mission to protect Australia's critical infrastructure," said Montado.

Dunstan said "The sophistication and frequency of cyber-attacks in the industrial automation space is consuming more and more of utilities' and OT-dependent businesses' focus and resourcing. Combatting these attacks requires a specialised response and I am pleased to be able to assist Secolve in meeting these challenges, lending my experience and expertise to make Australia's national critical infrastructure safer for companies and the communities reliant on their services."
