8:40 AM Bolstering Cyber Threat Resilience By Improving The Execution And Consistency Of Basic IT Practices

At the Bureau of Meteorology, Suthagar is charged with securing among the most complex and expansive technology networks in Australia.

With emphasis on hygiene in IT operations, he documents case studies and experiences that demonstrate:

  • Effective management of technology practices across ITIL, AGILE and DevOps principles to reduce threat exposures
  • BOM’s proactive threat response set-up (Eg: WannaCry Response & Mitigation)
  • Managing a technology overhaul strategy that integrates legacy and new technology footprints for visibility across the technology network
  • Improving staff resilience and awareness through training and scenario testing
