Nigel Hedges

Chief Information Security Officer, Chemist warehouse

I provide CISO-level leadership in an enterprise setting.
I enjoy strategy, program development, operations and building & developing an engaged, capable and resilient team.
I like working with a variety of stakeholders and learning from all parts of the business.
Supporting the business is important to me, I do this with a pragmatic approach to security.

I am a Fellow of The Australian Information Security Association (FAISA) and Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (MAICD). I have two masters (MBA 2013, Cybersecurity 2019) and several industry certifications (CISA, CISM, CRISC, CGEIT, CISSP, CCSK, ITIL F, COBIT F, CSX F, ISO27001 LA & LI. )

I am a creative person by nature, when not doing cyber I am tinkering with my DJ equipment, mixing music, trying to produce my own, and travelling abroad (pre- and post- pandemic). Lastly I enjoy playing video games with my primary school aged son.
