Shane Read

Noble Group
Chief Information Security Officer
Shane is the Group Chief Information Security Officer with Noble Group based out of Hong Kong. Noble has undergone several years of rapid change from being a leading commodities player to now focusing on the APAC domestic market, this corporate downsizing has presented several challenges in developing his security program with a shrinking corporate budget and footprint while addressing cyber risk and keeping technology current. Prior to this he performed several key roles within the Australian Federal Government, including the Department of Defence’s appointed Information Systems Security Officer and Department of Climate Change’s Information Technology Security Advisor.

With over 20 year’s experience in Government and Private industry he has a lot to share and loves building knowledge and collaborating within industry. He acknowledges that the Cyber industry has so many great solutions and appliances, yet a BEC and similar attacks work because of poor cyber hygiene, lack of training and companies not appropriately performing risk assessments to identify their weaknesses before the Cyber Criminals do. Shane holds a Masters of Policing, Intelligence and Counterterrorism from Macquarie University.
