Nick Savvides: IT Security Specialist & Technology Evangelist
The best way to contact me is via email or twitter. Follow me on twitter for miscellaneous musings on security, beer and the occasional insight.
By the way, I am not crazy, I don't speak about myself in the 3rd person, below is my speaker bio.
Nick Savvides is a Senior Principal Systems Engineer with Symantec’s Cyber Security group. Nick works with organisations to develop information security strategy and solve complex business problems, to make security a business enabler rather than inhibitor. He also represents Symantec at conferences, forums, industry bodies, government relations and in the media.
With over 15 years experience as an IT security practitioner, Nick has a deep understanding of IT security practices and considerations. Specialising in and focussing on identity and information protection, Nick has in-depth knowledge of strong authentication, identity management, encryption, data loss prevention and mobility.
He has contributed to standards, product development and some of Australia’s largest IT security projects. Nick believes that well applied strong security is compatible with a good user experience.
He is an active member of the IT Security community and a member of a number of industry bodies. He is regularly invited to speak at IT and Security related conferences in the Asia Pacific region and is frequent contributor of articles to industry journals, magazines and forums. Nick is a graduate of the University Of Melbourne and when not working enjoys craft beer, cycling and silly hats.
