Brett White, Thomas Duryea Brett White, Thomas Duryea

IT solutions and managed services provider Thomas Duryea Logicalis has launched a CSO as-a-service initiative which it claims adds new capabilities to an already comprehensive security lifecycle offering. 

Former Juniper Networks executive Brett White has joined TDL as its first "as a service" chief security officer.

White has been appointed CSO for TDL’s Security Practice, reporting to Gavin Coulthard, TDL’s national security practice manager.

He has extensive experience in security and compliance, including prior roles as pre-sales architect at Palo Alto Networks and Security and Network architect at Telstra.

He also spent five years in Germany working for Ixia and Agilent Technologies, and has more than 20 years’ experience in the networking and security industry, having worked for, and supported, some of the largest service providers and vendors across Australia, the US and Europe.

Coulthard said White’s primary responsibility was driving TDL’s CSO as-a-service to board level executives and business leaders of companies ranging from SMEs to large enterprises and corporates.

“As digital transformation takes hold across all sectors, cyber security and compliance simply cannot be ignored. Organisations that don’t have an in-house CSO resource are grappling with developing a security strategy that complies with government regulations on securing and protecting data privacy. In addition, an industry-wide shortage of security practitioners is having direct impact on security lifecycle strategy development.”

Michael Chanter, chief executive, TDL, said: “As customers and board-level executives confront new security threats in the digital economy we are staying ahead of the curve by providing our customers with comprehensive security solutions and innovative services with initiatives such as CSO as-a-service.

“Brett’s newly-created role will provide executive level advice and guidance, bridging the gap between government regulation and available in-house security resources needed to achieve compliance to Australian information security standards.  A strategic hire for the Security Practice, Brett will be a real asset to TDL’s continued growth.”
