Kate Pearce

Kate Pearce is a councilor for InternetNZ, and a senior security consultant for a Fortune 100 company. She has worked with clients across the globe on cyber security, helping them secure systems and organisations at scales from small companies to multinational corporations. She has undertaken research into the security of network technologies, and novel offense and defense techniques.
Kate is an organiser of BSides Wellington (http://bsides.nz), an inclusive event for cyber security education. She has become involved with promoting diversity, particularly the involvement of women and LBGTQIA+ people, in internet and computer security spaces.


Cyber Security is becoming ever more relevant and, to many, more frightening. It seems like every day a thing we have come to rely on for life and business cannot be trusted. In such a fast moving and adversarial environment how can a business survive, let alone thrive? Security, like business, is about more than just technology - and so is governance. Both come down to managing people, resources and risk.

In this discussion, Kate will draw out some lessons and insights from unexpected places to have you thinking about business, cyber security, and diversity in a new light.
