DXC has appointed Neville Burdan as security leader across Asia Pacific, recruiting the seasoned cyber specialist from NTT.

Effectively immediately, Singapore-based Burdan will hold responsibility for the global system integrator’s (GSI) regional security division which includes cyber defence, digital identity, secured infrastructure and security risk management capabilities. The move will see him sync up with Seelan Nayagam as president of Asia Pacific and Mark Hughes as global president of security.

“I am honoured to be selected to lead the DXC security business by two very passionate, client-centric and people-centric leaders, thank you Seelan Nayagam and Mark Hughes,” Burdan wrote.

The switch brings down the curtain on a career spanning more than 16 years at NTT, following management positions at then Datacraft and Dimension Data running Microsoft, end-user computing and security practices.

Most recently, Burdan spearheaded the strategy and implementation of NTT’s cyber security solutions in Asia Pacific, overseeing regional teams with a specific focus on consulting and managed security services within physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure environments.

“It all started with Datacraft and setting up the Microsoft business to grow and prosper in Asia Pacific,” Burdan added. “Having built the Microsoft business and moved to information worker and then cyber security in Dimension Data, the journey was never boring. Best wishes, NTT.”

Prior to joining then Datacraft in 2006, Burdan spent more than eight years at Microsoft in both New Zealand and Singapore, holding technical positions while also helping to incubate emerging server technologies regionally. This was in addition to systems engineering roles at Digital Equipment Corporation, Open Technology and Consultech Engineering among others pre-2000.
