Professional Networking Events

Wellington Networking Forum

28 September 2018
12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
PWC Centre
Level 4
10 Waterloo Quay

Session One: 12:00pm – 12:40pm


Topic: Ethics: Doing the Right Things Right

Hear from Greg Nicholls on the challenges around making the right decision— the nature of the role you have and the profession you are in. Where to draw the line between supporting an organisation to achieve its goals and reporting on where an organisation is failing.

When to escalate and when to resolve with the responsible manager? When to be part of the team, and when to stand apart from it?

Greg is an experienced public-sector manager with roles in recent years with the State Services Commission and the Treasury. In 2006/7 he led the development and rollout of the Standards of Integrity and Conduct, the code of conduct applied to 120 State services entities. He has been involved in policy and operational roles for other key government initiatives. He is a Chartered Accountant with prior experience as an auditor, financial manager and consultant.

Session Two: 1:10pm – 2:00pm


Talk Outline

Chapter 12 of the NZISM deals with Media and IT Equipment Decommissioning and Disposal.  Technology has advanced considerably since the early days of “wiping a magnet” over the tapes or disk drives.  There have also been some inventive attacks on equipment to recover data.  These advances have required a more robust approach to decommissioning and disposal.  In August New Zealand’s first Approved Secure Destruction Facility capable of 6 and 3mm shred was signed off and this service is available to government agencies and commercial entities.

This talk will discuss some of the technology changes, attack vectors and the new Approved Secure Destruction Facility in Wellington.
