Dr Jordan Plotnek

"Security is a foundational requirement for innovation and growth. This drives my passion for security science, particularly in response to emerging technologies that threaten socio-political stability and those that can cause cyber-physical impacts to civilian populations."

Jordan is a military veteran with a mixed academic and professional background spanning over a decade. Over the course of their career, Jordan has delivered on high-profile, complex, and sensitive security engineering and research programmes across Oceania, North America, Asia, and the Middle East.

Jordan's research is largely interdisciplinary and is centred around information warfare, emerging security threats, and socio-technical resilience. They regularly publish in reputable cross-disciplinary journals and academic conferences, as well as industry magazines and conferences around the world.
