Whoever said that cyber security is boring and only relevant for a select few needs to spend time with Magda. She brings insights, context and tangible tools and frameworks to help build understanding and awareness which are so crucial in today’s world, everyone has a role to play in your companies security posture and protecting your valuable customer data and your own brand.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time mentoring Magda over the years. Her knowledge of technical cyber security and expertise in senior stakeholder management has grown significantly. Magda’s unique blend of technical and senior advisory skills make her valuable asset to any organisation, as consultant or leading a project team. Along with her undeniable talent, Magda is always been an absolute joy to be around
Hiring Magda as our Asia Pacific BISO (Business Information Security Officer) led to great outcomes in improving our General I.T. and Cyber Security posture including a significant increase in business awareness of the role all employees have in ensuring resilient security. Magda's passion for all things security, her warm an engaging outgoing manner, her energy and desire for excellence in outcomes along with her deep technical expertise make any decision to work with Magda a very sound one.
Magda was phenomenal at our masterclass and event! She really knows her stuff and provided information seemingly available at her fingertips. She said it best that when you are passionate about something, you will get excited over it. She gave valuable insights and advice to our professional participants as well aspiring cybersecurity careerists. Can’t wait for another opportunity to work with Magda again.
Magda is a rare breed. She brings a passion to cyber security that would be difficult to replicate anywhere. In unison, she is guided by a core set of values that cross the spectrum of highly ethical cyber management to acting as a champion for diversity and inclusion in this important part of the digital economy. And the fact that she can both decode and recruit non cyber people to this cause with such ease is testament to her brilliance and status as one of the leading benchmarks of cyber security in Asia. She’s also incredibly informed, witty and humble too. Just a delight on every level.
I had the privilege of meeting Magda for the first time two years ago in Melbourne. We were both featured on the CISO Executive Keynote Panel at the Cloudsec Annual Conference, an event that featured approximately 700 delegates. I was deeply impressed by Magda’s deep cybersecurity expertise. Most importantly, however, Magda’s ability to communicate complex technical matters in terms that resonate with senior business leaders clearly stood out. Recently, in 2020, we invited Magda to act as a guest lecturer during our 8 weeks long Cyber Leadership Program, attended by cyber leaders / CISOs from more than 7 countries. Magda was very kind to share her deep experience designing cyber resilience strategies, influencing boards and senior executives, as well as managing teams across disparate cultures with our delegates. During the entire period, Magda demonstrated exceptional interpersonal, collaboration, and persuasion skills. Her feedback has been instrumental to further refine our program. Magda is one of the outstanding cyber executives I have had the privilege to meet and work with.
