Rita Mac

Host, Producer

Rita is the voice and brains behind CyberBeat.

ICT is her bread and butter, but cybersecurity is what makes her tick.

She knows the ins and out of all things cyber. With over 30 years of technical experience, Rita takes listeners on a journey through the cybersecurity landscape revealing modern truths about hacking, data breaches and cybercrime.

Director of PaperDog and a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (GAICD).

Malcolm Crompton OA

Host

Malcolm has an agenda: to prove we can have both security and privacy in the digital age.

To prove his dedication to the cause, Malcolm founded Information Integrity Solutions, is the author of The New Governance of Data and received a Member of the Order of Australia for service to public administration in data protection, privacy, and identity management. He also served as Australia’s Privacy Commissioner from 1999 to 2004.

Malcolm is pro-privacy and pro-digital platforms. He’s enigmatic like that. Now he joins CyberBeat to tell us why.

Dione Green

Co-producer

A self-described ‘creative multitasker’, Dione is co-producer of CyberBeat.

She’s a journalist of all sorts - pen to paper, fingers to keyboard, thoughts to airwaves.

When she is not writing, Dione joins Malcolm and Rita to talk about all things cyber. She makes use of her extensive radio experience to break down complex cyber news so we can all make smarter, more informed decisions.

CyberBeat will broadcast locally on Dione’s program "Make A Change".
