NZTCF gets new CEO

Thorn, who succeeds David Stone, will start in his new role on the 14th of July.

Geoff Thorn has been appointed as the new CEO of industry body, the New Zealand Telecommunications Forum (TCF).

Thorn, who succeeds David Stone, will start in his new role on the 14th of July.

Thorn has extensive knowledge of the regulatory and legislative environment, most recently as General Manager of the Parliamentary Service and previously as General Manager of the Commerce Commission.

TCF Board Appointment Committee member Mat Bolland says Thorn's experience across a range of regulated industries and leadership in upgrading technology within parliament will bring policy and practical expertise to the role.

"We are delighted to have Geoff lead the TCF. His knowledge and networks in Government and a track record of building consensus will be an asset to an industry that is making significant investment in critical New Zealand infrastructure," says Bolland.

Thorn brings a good understanding of the regulatory environment and an independent and objective view of an industry that is key to New Zealand's future economic success.

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging.

Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
