Dr Greg Adamson is an Associate Professor and Enterprise Fellow in Cyber Security at the University of Melbourne School of Engineering. He has worked in cyber security for 25 years, in Australia and the UK, for government, industry and academia.
Companies he has worked with include the BBC, Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service, Fujitsu, the Royal Bank of Scotland, and Telstra. The most recent industry engagement was 8 years with ANZ's Transaction Banking, a $1.7bn business unit, where he introduced consideration of cyber risk into business planning. Greg has worked with blockchain since 2014, and has a strong interest in its governance. He established the Blockchain Special Interest Group at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the 430,000 member global technical professional organisation operating in 161 countries. He is on Standards Australia blockchain standards technical committee. He also specialises in professional ethics, and recently moved successful amendments to the IEEE's Code of Ethics, requiring members to consider issues of ethical design practice, and be cognisant of the role of intelligent systems. He considers the development of ethical practices to be critically important in addressing technology challenges as the world becomes increasingly and inseparably linked to advanced technologies. He also consults on these subjects, as Principal at Digital Risk Innovation.
