CISO Asia Agoda


Q1. Tell us a bit about your background and how you ended up in your current role.

Q2. What is the biggest challenge you face within your role today and how are you looking to tackle it?

I would say the biggest challenge we will face in 2021 will be to adopt a security approach that is adaptable to agile, and scalable to where the company wants to be

Q3. What has been your biggest success for 2020 so far?

Building automated incident and response systems

Q4. Describe a way that you help your organisation understand the value of cybersecurity?

My approach is by risk. What are the business risks? How to find the gaps, and then investing in closing these risks and gaps.

Q5, In which business area, function or metric, has your team made the biggest impact?

Visibility – where are the issues, gaps, risks, and closing them fast and with good coverage and accuracy

Q6. How do you determine what technology to invest in and how can you stay current with all the changes?

Looking at the risk matrix and assessing where our biggest gaps are. Then, once I decide to close these, I start to look for new technologies that can help me achieve this
