Host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Clayton Utz partner and head of cyber and data governance Brenton Steenkamp to discuss how and why he ended up in cyber, why the work is so purposeful and meaningful for him, what Clayton Utz offers clients in this space, and why the BigLaw firm is investing heavily in cyber.

Steenkamp also details what a day in the life of a cyber partner looks like, whether it is becoming more difficult to work in the cyber space, the indisputable need for preparation, getting into the head of threat actors in order to better serve clients, what conversations with clients typically look like, building resilience, flexing one’s muscles, and the opportunities for cyber practitioners moving forward.
