SHAMANE TAN MEI HSIA
As the Chief Growth Officer at Sekuro (Australia) and its Asia extension (Privasec), a leading
cybersecurity and digital resiliency partner, Shamane’s contribution to the cyber field extends
beyond the Singapore region. She founded Cyber Risk Meetup in 2017, a platform which allows sharing
of knowledge and learnings, bridging the skill gap by bringing in top experts to mentor/ impart
their experiences. Cyber Risk Meetup has now grown to more than 4,000 security members (across
Singapore, Tokyo, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide). Within this community, she facilitated
collaborative engagements between the industry leaders across Singapore and other countries
conducting panel discussions and thought-leadership events.
Her passion for cybersecurity led her to author her first book, “Cyber Risk Leaders: Global C-Suite Insights – Leadership and Influence in the Cyber Age” which had seen a great response in major bookstores around Singapore, Australia, and other parts of Asia (sold out in Cambodia) and globally on Amazon. This book demonstrates the value of bringing together the best insights from a diverse group of industry leaders around the world.
Although the field is largely dominated by males, it has not deterred her from appearing in global podcasts and conferences; including meeting with industry leaders such as former President Obama's CISO, the first female CIO of the White House, Interpol, FBI and many more. As a representative from Singapore and multi-award cybersecurity winner, she is also a keynote speaker at various conferences across countries on ways businesses and executives can improve their security posture and cyber resilience.
Shamane is truly a huge advocate for women in security and a role model for the next generation. She also sits on the Black Hat Asia board of advisors, and her journey continues. She is now the first Singaporean female cybersecurity author to have her latest book “Cyber Mayday and the Day After” published by Wiley, one of the top global publishers, which very quickly made Amazon’s best-seller list across US, UK and Australia.
Pengfei is a prominent student leader who thrives on cool projects and community work. While undergoing his undergraduate studies in the Singapore Institute of Technology, he was awarded the IMDA SG:D Scholarship and founded the SIT N0H4TS cybersecurity special interest club, of which he continues to serve as an advisor.
