eSecure is proud to announce the recent appointment of Clinton Smith as its new CEO, accepting the position as the company embarks upon an intensive period of strategic growth.
Prior to this appointment, Clinton has served as eSecure’s executive General Manager.
Colin Boyce, eSecure founder said: “Clinton is a passionate leader and active contributor to the cyber security industry, and we’re proud to have him on board as CEO as we grow into new areas and markets. I’m excited to pass the baton in support of our growth as we nip at the heels of the big competitors.”
A seasoned security professional with over 25 years of experience, Clinton has achieved significant security outcomes for many Australian and International clients and has served in leadership roles for organisations such as ANZ, BankWest, HBOS Australia and Deloitte Australia.

Innovation meets Experience
Clinton's passion for security has now been partnered with eSecure’s trusted and mature delivery capability, and it’s expected that this strong combination will translate into highly intelligent outcomes for existing and new clients.
A passionate proponent of Australian business, Clinton remarked, “Solving security challenges and providing a viable local alternative to Big-Brand, product centric services are core to our vision, and we’re proud of the experience we provide our clients. Up to now we’ve relied on word-of-mouth to get our message out: I feel it is time for the rest of Australia to understand what we can do and benefit from our services”.
“Good Security should be ‘right-sized’ and transparent. We specialise in providing our clients with innovative services, fresh thinking and a business-centric approach.”
Of eSecure’s plans for the immediate future, Clinton commented: “eSecure is presently tackling the issue of available security talent through leveraging Cloud Services, Automation and Specialist Training. This continues the tradition of our role as an industry incubator that has launched the careers of some of Australia’s top cybersecurity talent.”
“In addition to this, eSecure remains committed to innovation and is working with industry partners to develop unique services to deal with long-standing security issues such as non-traditional cyber attack surfaces.”
