Founder and Chief Technology Officer
My name is Daniel Johns, I am a founder of NIMIS Cybersecurity. I have worked everywhere from the NSA in the USA to Australian intelligence, banks and defence. I authored the Information Privacy Manual and started an ethical hacker group.
The mission of NIMIS Cybersecurity is borne out of my personal desire to uplift cybersecurity for the betterment of our society in general. I want to see a world where people of all ages and backgrounds feel safe online and companies aren’t challenged by their cyber risk but focused on delivering exceptional products and services to their clients.
My story started when I was recruited into Australian intelligence straight out of university. Specifically this was the Defence Signals Directorate (DSD), now called the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD). They liked me because of my technical skill, team work and peak performance.
The ASD is a leading authority on cybersecurity for good reason; they are the best at what they do. Whilst a lot of things that happened in ASD that will stay with me for life there is one quality of the agency that stands out the clearest - Leadership. It was leadership that enabled the agency to achieve a mission carried out in that thin slither of space between the really hard and the impossible. The same leadership installed the values and mission in me that still resonate today.
The mission, condensed to one line is, to protect our client's information and systems. It is this mission that NIMIS Cybersecurity is founded upon. We achieve our mission by providing advanced artificial intelligence based penetration testing services to our clients.
Founder and Chief Executive Officer
My name is Priya George. I am a founder and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of NIMIS Cybersecurity. My expertise is 20 years’ in transformation - technology, organisational restructure and cybersecurity.
Industries I have consulted in include mining, energy, water, financial services, technology and government.
The threat landscape that businesses, government and defence are facing is evolving with changes in technology and capability. I strongly believe implementing and supporting innovative technology in our workplaces is the way of the future.
Although human intelligence (good people) is incredibly important, augmenting our capabilities with scalable solutions is the solution.
My mission is to enable my team to secure client's information and systems through next generation artificial intelligence penetration testing. Prior to NIMIS Cybersecurity I developed and co-founded an analytics and video software company that came out of two years of technology research and development as part of a motorsport business.
I began my career in stakeholder engagement and business development before I decided to ‘take the leap’ and find my passion in driving change and supporting innovation within the technology, and cybersecurity space.
I'm driven and motivated to tackle difficult problems, support CEOs, directors and security leaders to develop secure environments that improve performance, and assurance, in order to tackle their KPIs with confidence and success.
My team and I solve security problems with expertise gained from defence intelligence, banking and technology innovation. I look forward to defending my clients from the most complex cyber threats.
