We’re pleased to announce respected industry figure Layne Hesse has joined Security Consulting Group’s Melbourne office as Principal Security Consultant.

Most recently at a global consulting and services firm where he was Director of Security and Resilience for the APAC region, Layne brings with him extensive experience in security risk management, master planning, audit and compliance, protective security, and technical security systems design, testing and commissioning.

Past positions have seen him in key roles for the development and implementation of a global integrated security and resilience program, the procurement and rollout of a global assistance and response program and a mass communication system for emergencies and crises, and the development of an enterprise-wide electronic security technology program.

He also established and served on regional and global crisis management teams prior to and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

There’s no doubt that Layne has a deep understanding of the global security landscape and is well placed to provide consultancy advice on this scale to SCG clients, so we extend a warm welcome and look forward to connecting him with those who would like to join the dots on the bigger security risk picture.
