ANZ makes cyber security hire

Former government cyber security expert Lynwen Connick has been named as ANZ’s chief information security officer.

In her new role, Ms Connick will lead the bank’s information security strategy and ensure it supports the bank’s digital transformation, ANZ said.

“As we transform into a digital bank, customers rightly expect that we will keep both their money and their data safe,” said ANZ group executive of technology Gerard Florian.

“Lynwen’s cyber security experience, working with government agencies and the private sector, will be a tremendous asset for both our business and our customers as we accelerate the delivery of new products and services.”

Prior to her appointment with ANZ, Ms Connick delivered the new National Cyber Security Strategy for the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, and previously held the role of chief information security officer with the Department of Defence, following a 25-year career with the Australian Signals Directorate.
