Barry Grek has been appointed as governance, risk and compliance director.
Grek joins the firm to drive the development of its strategic advisory services, with a focus on culture-centric cyber strategies, risk management programs, and IRAP and PCI services.
With over 25 years of experience, including leadership roles at industry mainstays Trustwave, Hivint, and BAE Systems, Grek has proven successful at scaling up cyber startups and growing established businesses.
Phronesis Security Chief Realist (CEO) and founder Elliot Dellys believes the appointment will be pivotal in continuing to accelerate the firm's impressive growth while maintaining the highest standards of service delivery.
"There are few people that understand cyber security in Australia better than Barry," Dellys says.
"Equally importantly, Barry shares our vision of cyber security for good. Culture is vitally important for us and having someone of his calibre that shares our ethos is a game-changer."
"I'm really excited to be joining Phronesis Security and working with Elliot again, who is building an organisation with shared core values and an ethos of doing things for the betterment of those around us," says Grek.
"What also attracted me is that Phronesis Security has built this into the fundamental operations of the business and its culture."
