Time: 7:30 - 9:30am
Location: AWS Office, Level 37, 2 Park Street, Sydney
For our first Sydney event of 2019, we’re hosting a brilliant tech entrepreneur and leader in the cyber-security space, Alisdair Faulkner from ThreatMetrix.
Undeniably, the cyber-security sector is one of the fastest growing areas for tech startups around the world. Alisdair Faulkner brings nearly two decades of industry experience in this space, leading product management and strategy as CPO of ThreatMetrix.
Alisdair, along with David Jones, and Scott Thomas founded ThreatMetrix in Australia in 2005, before expanding to the US in 2008, setting up its headquarters in San Jose. ThreatMetrix helps businesses prevent online fraud through its technology which provides real-time identification of high-risk digital behaviour and transactions through behavioural analytics.
Over the last 13 years, the company made a name for itself thanks largely to its proprietary online fraud detection and authentication technology, and last year, the global business was acquired by LexisNexis Risk Solutions for an incredible £580m (AU$1.01 Billion).
Alisdair is returning to Sydney and we’re very excited to chat to him about his founder journey and dive deeper into his and his company’s incredible growth and achievements. We also want to move beyond the hype surrounding cybersecurity and hear practical advice from a leader in the digital identity space. Plus unpack Alisdair’s product management skills and techniques which were paramount to ThreatMetrix’s success.
Breakfast included and plenty of opportunities to network and meet someone new in the community.
