Fortinet appoints Glenn Maiden as director of threat intelligence, FortiGuard Labs Australia and New Zealand


Fortinet has appointed Glenn Maiden as director of threat intelligence at FortiGuard Labs Australia and New Zealand. Glenn’s role will focus on threat intelligence sharing to help Australian and New Zealand organisations protect themselves from current and emerging threats.

With a strong background in defence, intelligence, security and federal government, Glenn has led a wide variety of cybersecurity activities including penetration testing, systems engineering as well as risk assessments and cyber operations. While in the Australian Intelligence Community (AIC), Glenn supported intelligence collection, processing and reporting.

Glenn has also held roles with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), where he was the agency’s cybersecurity advisor, and with Lockheed Martin, where he ran cyberoperations for the organisation’s Defence Centralised Processing project.

Glenn Maiden said, “Threat intelligence sharing is a crucial aspect of minimising the harm caused by cybersecurity breaches in Australian and New Zealand organisations.

By integrating threat intelligence into their cybersecurity posture, organisations can reduce their risk and optimise their security investments, focusing on the controls that will make a real difference.”
