    Terry Durnin, AVP Australia, New Zealand, Imperva

    As the Area Vice President for Imperva in Australia & New Zealand, my team and I work with organisations to help them understand the inherent risks their critical data is exposed to. We then help them to prioritise the data assets and applications that require the greatest level of risk mitigation for potential data loss during an incident.

    With more than 20 years of experience in enterprise technology, I have an innate understanding of the challenges our clients face in deriving real and measurable value from their security investments.

    I am committed to helping organisations reduce their cyber risk by gaining real visibility of how their data is being used in the cloud, on-premise, or in hybrid environments, so they can then put in place the policies and controls to buy down that risk.
