Brian Hay APM has a rare blend of cyber security skills and business attributes.  Long considered a Thought Leader in the world of Cyber Security he learned his craft not from the technical demands of the industry but rather by focusing on the activities of organised crime and cyber criminals.

Recently with Unisys as Lead CISO Advisor APAC, Security he was responsible for managing and developing Unisys’ Security Consulting business for Asia Pacific, while delivering operational and service excellence. 
Brian brings a wealth of security experience, and has a proven record of partnering with industry for innovative solutions to difficult problems.

Since 2004, he has worked extensively in the area of financial, identity and cybercrime.  He was Commander of the Queensland Police Fraud & Cyber Crime Group, Chair of the Australia New Zealand Police Advisory Agency’s eCrime Working Group, a pivotal driver of the Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network, and member of the Federal Attorney-General’s National Cybercrime Working Group. 

In 2009 Brian was the recipient of an international award from McAfee for efforts in combating cybercrime - "The International Award for Cyber Crime Fighter of the Year". Brian is also  the recipient of the Australian Police Medal, and in 2010 he was the recipient of the National AusCERT Award for Individual Excellence in Information Security.  He has a Masters in Public Policy and Administration and former President of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (Brisbane Chapter). 

"As a fellow event producer with  over 18 years experience throughout Europe, America and Australasia, I fully endorse Brian Hay as an excellent keynote speaker. We work with A/NZ CFOs ranging from ASX200 through to all levels of government and the largest not for profits in the region, Brian has consistently been our stand out presenter on every occasion.  I can not endorse Brian highly enough as he not only bespoke his presentation to our audience and has delivered over 10 outstanding keynotes, but is also genuinely a joy to work with and will always deliver 110% - One of our most recent and important events consisted of over 350 CFOs and Brian was voted the absolute stand out presenter and we look forward to welcoming him back this year."
