Paul Ducklin

Head of Technology, Asia Pacific

Paul Ducklin joined Sophos from the South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (similar to Australia's CSIRO) in 1995.

He has held numerous senior technical roles in Sophos over the years, variously heading up software engineering, global technical support, and even — for a few admittedly temporary weeks of vertiginously enormous budgetary power — IT.

Paul moved to Sydney in 2001 to join Sophos Australia, which hosts one of the company's four global R&D labs. He is now Head of Technology, Asia Pacific.

In 2009, he won the inaugural AusCERT Director's Award for Individual Excellence in Information Security.

Paul is one of the world's leading security experts, and loves to share his knowledge. He is an entertaining and sought-after presenter world-wide.

Paul is a press contact for Australia and New Zealand and is available to talk to the media about virus, spam, spyware, encryption, data loss and related security issues.
