SecurityBrief New Zealand - Technology news for CISOs & cybersecurity decision-makers

Joanne Wong stories

Joanne Wong is a prolific author with a deep interest in the evolving landscape of cybersecurity, where she explores the balance between human intuition and robotic precision in maintaining robust security defences. Her insights delve into the intricate dance between emerging threats, such as fileless malware, and the sophisticated responses driven by behavioral analytics and artificial intelligence (AI).

With a keen eye on the financial implications and strategic decision-making in cybersecurity, especially in periods of rapid growth, Wong addresses the complex challenges that Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) face. Her work is not only informational but also carries a strong advocacy for diversity, particularly in drawing women into tech and cybersecurity fields. Highlighting the ongoing battle for gender equality within the industry, her narrative is one of encouragement towards more inclusive corporate policies and practices.

Furthermore, Joanne Wong's coverage on the regional impacts of cybersecurity developments, with a focus on the Asia Pacific, positions her as a key voice in understanding how AI will reshape the field. She dissects the barriers to AI adoption, pointing out the critical shortage of skilled experts as a more significant hurdle than financial constraints. Her contributions, culminating in her role as Interim Chief Marketing Officer at LogRhythm, underscore her commitment to advancing security technologies, diversity, and gender equality within the tech landscape.
