Experteq, the Australian IT company, has added two new appointments to its leadership team. Stephen Frede has joined as Experteq’s new Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), and Chris Nguyen has been appointed Head of Information Security.

Frede brings with him over 40 years of experience in information technology, with over 30 years specialising in information security. 

As an information security expert, he recognises the importance of understanding the technical detail behind information security issues and systems to make accurate real-world risk assessments and implement cost-effective long-term solutions. 

Before he was appointed CISO, Frede held key positions and was directly responsible for information security in several large organisations such as JP Morgan, Sydney Water and Ausgrid, overseeing and applying his technical skill and experience strategically.  

Nguyen has excellent experience championing the information security agenda and leading teams in numerous organisations, including CyberCX. 

As Head of Information Security, he will manage and oversee the Infosec / SecOps team, driving the evolution of our security services and upholding the organisation’s high standards of information security. 

“We are excited to welcome Stephen into his new role as CISO, where he will work closely with the rest of the Senior Leadership Team to set the direction for the growth and development of our information security business,” says John Griffin, COO, Experteq.

“Stephen will also collaborate with our new Head of Information Security Chris to deliver the next evolution of Experteq’s security services. We look forward to bringing their vast array of skills, expertise and insights to bear, to benefit our clients as we continue to add value as a trusted partner.”
