Jack Sussmilch

Champion, Full Stack Cybersecurity





When you think of cybersecurity, it’s tempting to regard humans as the weakest link in the chain. But successful projects demand ‘real world’ solutions. Enter Jack Sussmilch, our trusted Cybersecurity Advisor. He puts people back at the centre of the cybersecurity ecosystem, providing new (and adapting/optimising the existing) technology and tools that make sense and fit more easily into your staff’s day-to-day.

An exceptional communicator with decades of experience advising tier-1 organisations on implementing systems that are sustainable, practical, and efficient, Jack has an uncanny knack for succeeding where others have missed the mark. This unique capability is particularly noticeable when it comes to software development security – yet another area in which Jack is at the vanguard of developments in both technology and human-computer interactions.

Having worked in the sector since leaving school, Jack gained a bachelor’s degree in Applied Computing – Commerce and Computer Science. He’s also fully accredited with the following ISC2 Certifications:

  • Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP)
  • Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP)
  • Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP)

Most fulfilled when he’s helping others succeed at their work, Jack likes to focus on reducing friction amongst teams and between teams to empower people to work cohesively and achieve outcomes that often surpass even the highest expectations of stakeholders. He also gets a kick out of seeing his work being tested in the real world.

Outside work, Jack can be found chasing down anything that keeps him intellectually engaged. As he puts it, he’s not happy unless he’s learning something new. A devoted husband and father, he also loves nothing more than spending quality time with his family.
