Nathan Cayirylys started in the security trade in Moree, NSW in 1991 as an apprentice radio fitter mechanic for North West Security, having shown a natural aptitude for working with technology. He moved to Newcastle in 1998 and subcontracted his services to a number of security companies before moving into the manufacture of high-end security products. Through working in security manufacture Nathan acquired an in-depth knowledge of cryptology and secure issuance which played an important role in the design of the Defence DCAC (Defence Common Access Card) system.

The ever-evolving security technology landscape ensures that Nathan stays abreast of the latest developments and how they can be implemented in industrial, commercial and domestic environments.
