David M Williams

David has been computing since 1984 where he instantly gravitated to the family Commodore 64. He completed a Bachelor of Computer Science degree from 1990 to 1992, commencing full-time employment as a systems analyst at the end of that year. Within two years, he returned to his alma mater, the University of Newcastle, as a UNIX systems manager. This was a crucial time for UNIX at the University with the advent of the World-Wide-Web and the decline of VMS. David moved on to a brief stint in consulting, before returning to the University as IT Manager in 1998. In 2001, he joined an international software company as Asia-Pacific troubleshooter, specialising in AIX, HP/UX, Solaris and database systems. Settling down in Newcastle, David then found niche roles delivering hard-core tech to the recruitment industry and presently is the Chief Information Officer for a national resources company where he particularly specialises in mergers and acquisitions and enterprise applications.

No matter the protections you have in place, the last defence for cyber security rests with the end user. How do you educate in a respectful, engaging way? I tried out Phriendly Phishing, built on this very premise, finding it reduced my risk and exposure to phishing and that my users enjoyed the process.

What's new in Office 365 this week?

Getting your invoice via email instead of needing to sign in, an updated list of known safe websites, and knowing when a OneDrive folder is shared are new features in Office 365 this week.

Software-defined networking, multiple mobile networks, data centres in the exchange, and catering for autonomous vehicle networking are some of the things Telstra has in store for the very near future.
