Representatives from some of New Zealand's largest companies are gathering in Wellington this week to hear from one the world's top cyber security experts, Kristopher Rush from the Software Engineering Institute, or SEI in the US.

The SEI has joined up with Victoria University and the Wellington firm Total Risk to develop training, advice and protection services in cyber security here.

This comes as a major international survey of 1200 global CEO's by KPMG shows only half believe they are prepared for a future cyber event.

LISTEN to Kathryn Ryan speak with Kristopher Rush about his work, and the potential threat cyber crime poses to the security of governments, companies and individuals.
