Aura Information Security Bolsters Leadership Team

Aura Information Security has appointed industry expert Tom Moore to the role of Practice Manager for its New Zealand and Australian operations.

As Aura’s Practice Manager, Tom will be responsible for the day-to-day management and leadership of Aura’s consulting business on both sides of the Tasman.

According to Aura Information Security General Manager, Peter Bailey, Tom brings a wide range of experience and expertise that will be invaluable to the business as it enters a period of strategic growth.

“We’re experiencing more demand for consulting services than ever before.
