Dean Bird


Dean started out in IT almost 20 years ago in a not-for-profit supporting customers of a small ISP as a helpdesk technician. He worked his way up through the ranks until reaching the position of Senior Networking and Systems Administrator. After a short stint in DevOps he was promoted into a technical advisory role with CERT Australia before moving into the Australian Signals Directorate’s (ASD) Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) as part of a machinery of Government change.


Today, Dean is one of the technical leads in the ACSC’s Hunt and Incident Response team working with organisations and partners as they navigate through cyber incidents.
