Kordia New Zealand has appointed Peter Bailey to the newly created role of general manager of Aura Information Security, building on the company’s $10 million acquisition of the cyber security firm.
As reported by Computerworld New Zealand, the telco acquired Aura InfoSec in November last year with the company’s founder and former CEO electing to pursue related interests, creating the need for a new leadership role.
Bailey’s mandate is twofold; to maintain the company’s track record in high quality customer service delivery and to continue to grow Aura InfoSec in the burgeoning cyber-security industry.
“Without doubt there is growing awareness of the role cyber-security plays in many businesses but our point of difference is we take an holistic approach to working with our clients,” Bailey says.
Bailey was formerly service delivery manager at Aura InfoSec, a role covering a wide range of customer service and project management activities and following the acquisition by Kordia he was appointed to the company’s executive committee.
“It’s not just the technical services we provide but we also look after all aspects of information security - including accreditation, certification, design reviews and managing process and policy,” Bailey adds.
“We own the entire security process for our customers with no outsourcing delivering a gap-free single-sourced service.”
In late 2010, Bailey joined the Ministry of Justice as national operations training manager before joining Aura InfoSec in March 2013 in his previous role as service delivery manager.
