Dragos has confirmed that it has appointed Hayley Turner as regional director for Australia and New Zealand, and Ben Sullivan as senior channel manager, strengthening the company’s local offering.

Under the new appointments, Turner will be tasked with overseeing Dragos’ local growth, enhancing their partner network and boosting Dragos’ OT and ICS cyber security position in the market.

Turner will also manage vulnerabilities and respond to ICS threats.


Meanwhile, Sullivan will oversee the company’s channel go-to-market program, which enables Dragos clients to overcome threats to critical infrastructure.

According to the company, the appointments coincide with the increasing growth in demand for ICS and OT cyber security within the region.

“Hayley brings significant experience in security intelligence, industrial security, strategy, sales, and business development to lead our go-to-market efforts in the region,” Christophe Culine, chief revenue officer at Dragos, said.

“We are also delighted to welcome Ben to Dragos. Like Hayley, Ben has strong credentials in the cyber security industry, with deep expertise in technical strategy and building successful channel programs and understanding the needs of partners.

“Both appointments build on Dragos’ investments in Australia and New Zealand over the past 18 months, as demand for the Dragos Platform has accelerated. We established our regional headquarters in Melbourne, as well as training facilities and key partnerships. We are very excited to welcome Hayley and Ben to the team.”

Turner joins the Dragos team after more than half a decade working with the Australian federal government in security intelligence, before working with a cyber security start-up in London.

She previously served internationally as a commercial director, country manager and director of industrial security.

“It’s no surprise that I’m passionate about protecting critical infrastructure and helping industrial organisations get the best technology available to defend the operational networks that underpin their businesses,” Turner said.

“I’m eager to build on the strong foundation Dragos has already established in Australia and New Zealand to deliver on our mission to safeguard civilisation.”

Sullivan previously served as technical director and head of cyber security at NEXTGEN group, after serving in the military for 10 years – with much of the time in the special forces.

“I have long been an admirer of Dragos and its mission to safeguard critical systems across the industrial sector,” Sullivan said.

“At a time when the threat landscape is becoming more sophisticated and the Australian government has activated new national security laws to safeguard critical infrastructure, companies, and institutions. I’m looking forward to working with our partners and our mutual customers to help them secure their operational technology infrastructure.”
