As Head of the Office of the Prime Minister's Cyber Security Special Adviser, Sandra's goal is to build a strong Australian cyber security ecosystem by leading on cyber security strategy and policy. Her work is focused by Australia's Cyber Security Strategy and driven by a vision for national cyber resilience to support economic and social development and national security.
Sandra is also a passionate advocate for increasing participation of women in the Australian cyber security industry.
In June 2017 Sandra took on leadership of the Prime Minister's Cyber Resilience Taskforce to drive positive change in Australia's capability and response to cyber security and cybercrime threats and incidents.
Prior to taking up her current role, Sandra worked in various senior roles in the Department of Defence, and has a track record of successfully delivering complex projects across the intelligence and security communities.
When not tackling cyber security, Sandra enjoys cooking, food journalism, fashion, football, hanging out with her young son and learning to surf.
