Cyber Security Executive

Hello, I’m Edwin Kwan

I’m a technology and cyber security leader who has built, transformed and maintained cyber security capabilities, programs and teams.

I spent 10 years helping Tyro Payments grow from a start-up to the fifth largest merchant acquiring bank in Australia.


As an accomplished cybersecurity executive, I bring a unique blend of visionary leadership, strategic acumen, and a people-centric approach. With a proven track record in steering organisations through complex cybersecurity landscapes, I excel in inspiring, motivating, and effectively communicating to foster a culture of innovation and resilience.

I have successfully led organisations through significant security uplifts to meet regulatory requirements. Notably, playing a pivotal role in enhancing the security posture of an Australian financial services organisation to successfully obtain a banking licence.


You don’t have to take my word for it. See what my team had to say about me.

Epic Failures in DevSecOps

The Genesis of an Idea. That’s where the idea for this book came from. It started with a conversation with fellow speakers at RSA Conference where we were swapping war stories over a couple of beers. The conclusion of the evening of telling tales was the desire to find a way to get those stories out to the community. Not just stories, but failures as is part of the process of making the cultural and technological transformation that needs to happen in order to keep innovating. It is part of the journey to DevSecOps. The stories presented here aren’t a roadmap. What they do is acknowledge failure as a part of the knowledge base of the DevSecOps Community. The days of stand-alone security teams isolated from the real process of development are coming to an end.

Over 30,000 printed copies and over 200+ people in line at the author book signing at the RSA conference.
