Samantha McIntyre/Claire Pales

With more people working from home and more people connecting with each other through technology I thought it would be great to catch up with Cybersecurity expert - Claire Pales.

Claire runs a Cybersecurity company called 27Lanterns - she specialises in helping companies understand their security requirements and hire the right people for the organisation at the right time. Her model is to step into the Chief Security Officer role - help the organisation navigate their security concerns and then replace herself in that role. 27Lanterns came about because she realised that those that were trying to hire security teams did not necessarily have the background nor the skillset to do so. 

Claire has also written a book called the Secure CIO that works through her framework that assist companies to work through their security requirements and hire the right security people and strategy to take the business forward. She also has a podcast were she interviews many CIO’s on how they have built their security teams. 

Prior to running her own business Claire had grown her career at multiple large organisation and across many countries. We discuss the skills shortage in security, we discuss women in IT and security and we discussed the importance of networking and maintaining networks and how important they are if you spend some time overseas. 

We talked about sharing your data, how well do you know companies and trust them with your information, and the data of your children and the importance of password security especially for children. 

We also talk about where is Australia in line with the rest of world with Cybersecurity? Are we are experiencing the same threats as the rest of the world? Does Australia need to uplift their maturity.

We finish with ‘if you are a CIO’ what should you be focusing on at the moment.

I absolutely loved this chat with Claire - I am so impressed with her experience, her career and the business that she has created. Hope you get as much out of this chat as I did.
