Denny Wan is the principal consultant of Security Express
Denny is a cyber security expert and researcher in cyber insurance pricing strategies. He has over 20 years of experience in IT risk management, commencing his career as an IT Security Auditor with IBM Global Services Australia. He consulted extensively to Vodafone Hutchison Australia and was instrumental in the establishment of its IT security team. He consults widely in the education and financial services industries with his demonstrated expertise in developing security controls for virtualised infrastructure, hybrid cloud and DevSecOps practices.
His interest in cyber risk quantification has led to his current research into Cyber Insurance Pricing Strategy at Macquarie University in Australia under an Australian Government Commonwealth Scholarship. Simply put, cyber insurance pricing is a powerful way to describe cyber risk from a business perspective. A rapid rise in the awareness of cyber-attacks, particularly those attributed to nation state actions, might have skewed public perception resulting in cyber risk treated as a special category spared from normal business scrutiny. Investment in cyber security controls have been predominately based off risk ratings instead of competing against other business demands based on Return of Investment (ROI) calculations.
The research collaboration between Denny and Petra brings balance back into enterprise cyber risk management by integrating quantification with well understood actuarial disciplines.
