Art of Hacking the Brain in Cyber Security. Influencing others. Optimising our own performance.
As cyber security challenges continue to mount in the form of breaches, threats, regulations, turbo-charged digital transformations, the importance of maintaining physical and mental well-being for cyber security professionals has never been greater. However, this requires them to be mindful of both their own state and of their businesses. It is imperative for them to have the right communication and influencing skills to inspire confidence and get the appropriate support from their leadership. It requires them to cultivate healthy, positive, and disciplined habits to mark progress and avoid the vicious cycle of burnout and stress.
To address these important areas, I was delighted to be joined by one of the more prominent leaders in our cyber industry – Branko Ninkovic. The conversation is authentic, practical and has host of actionable takeaways. The tips are coming from seasoned practitioners in the field and consequently are grounded in the real-world outcomes and challenges.
Branko Ninkovic is the founder of Dragonfly Technologies, a thriving cyber security practice servicing Australia’s most security conscious ASX listed organisations. Dragonfly helps clients in areas such as Health Care, Federal Law Enforcement, Retailing, Banking, Finance and Taxation.
Branko has over 20 years’ experience specialising in cyber security. Over this time, Dragonfly has worked with many well-known and trusted brands to build in their cyber defences to protect, detect and respond to data breaches.
Branko is known for his innovative and collaborative approach, most recently displayed by the creation of fintech Edge, a collaborative platform created in conjunction with Consumer Owned Banking Association (COBA). Fintech Edge was created to raise cyber security awareness, provide thought leadership and insights for COBA member banks.

VAXXIN8 was selected as one of the first participants to take part in the Australian Federal Government’s Landing Pad program in San Francisco to launch in the North American Market.
A key to Branko’s success is his ability to develop strong, enduring partnerships which are outcomes driven, providing value to all involved. Branko is also a knowledgeable and engaging speaker on cyber security and business who has spoken at numerous events including IBM seminars and SAP conferences.
