About the winners: CyberRisk
CyberRisk was founded in December 2016 by Wayne Tufek and Leong Wang. The two founders had worked together during the prior year and realised they had complementary skill sets.
Wayne Tufek has over 20 years experience in designing business driven strategies to improve cyber risk management in some of Australia’s largest organisations.
Leong Wang has over 18 years experience in IT and he specialises in Infrastructure and security services implementation.
Significant cyber events were occurring at a growing rate in 2016. Leong and Wayne saw the opportunity to use their IT industry experience to help businesses manage risk and navigate what they call “the FUD; Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt.
Risk has positive aspects if managed correctly - competitive advantage, business growth and revenue expansion to name a few - but the CyberRisk philosophy is that protecting your organisation’s reputation is crucial in ensuring that your business continues to grow and meet its objectives.
CyberRisk provide their customers with expert advice to protect their organisation and its reputation from cyber-attacks, leveraging years of experience from managing and deploying IT Security programs to organisations across many different industries.
CyberRisk believe that cybersecurity starts with support from executives because they are ultimately accountable for the business and its customers.
“The Cyber Security landscape can be daunting as there are so many products providing solutions for every niche,” Leong said, talking to the MailGuard Blog after their prize presentation. “We advise our clients not to try and boil the ocean and help them identify and prioritise areas of high risk by implementing appropriate controls that are practical and cost effective. Cyber security is often considered an IT problem, in reality, it’s a combination of improving people, process and technology.”
Asked why CyberRisk decided to offer MailGuard’s products to their clients, Wayne Tufek responded:
“The key benefits of MailGuard are that the technology provides a higher level of spam and threat detection, and the MailGuard alert digest is a simple way for customers to release emails that have been quarantined... MailGuard’s local pro-active support team retrospectively review inbound emails, and are responsive and knowledgeable about the product which is also a big plus.”

Wayne and Leong say they plan to spend their $5000 JB Hi-Fi prize voucher on boy toys; possibly a new LCD TV.
