Marco Figueroa

Senior Manager, Cyber Security, Risk and Compliance
Australian Institute of Company Directors

A recognised industry practitioner with extensive senior leadership, cyber security, technology risk and engineering experience in government, ASX fast-moving consumer goods with international operations in Asia Pacific region, private and educational organisations managing cyber security and technology risk. As a senior executive I operate with an agile and high performing mindset set to achieving strategic and tactical outcomes by inspiring, empowering and supporting people whilst encouraging collaboration and information sharing.

My career objective is to add value to organisations pursuing opportunities in digital transformation programs by developing, implementing, and accelerating the speed of secure, resilient and reliable systems through innovation, best practice, leadership and end state vision. 

My professional goal is to provide strategic and tactical cyber security and technology risk direction by engineering sustainable risk and security services that deliver defined levels of risk at defined cost. This aim is accomplished through a meticulous risk-oriented approach towards investment prioritisation and the associated selective use of cyber defence technologies, architectures, policies, and advanced technology risk governance frameworks designed to protect digital assets, corporate and personal identifiable information in a structured and documented manner.  

Before joining the Australian Institute of Company Directors, I was the Group CISO for NSW Department of Customer Service.
