About the speakers

Eliza-May AustinEliza-May Austin CEO of th4ts3cur1ty company

Eliza is driven within her business endeavours: to render cyber defence not only relevant but genuinely achievable.

Recognizing the prevalent need to outsource for robust cyber defence, she champions this necessity wholeheartedly, given that her business thrives on it. Yet, she is acutely aware of the barriers many enterprises face, often priced out of the market for essential cybersecurity services. Moreover, she acknowledges the common perception among non-cybersecurity professionals that the industry's offerings are shrouded in complexity, leaving them vulnerable to exploitation. In her conference talks, Eliza consistently emphasises accessibility. Her goal is to equip attendees with actionable insights they can readily implement upon returning to their respective offices.

By demystifying cybersecurity and imparting practical strategies, she empowers individuals to effect tangible improvements in their organisation's security posture.

For Eliza, it's not just about discourse; it's about delivering genuine value that translates into meaningful outcomes in the cyber security industry
