She leads client engagement in the area of cyber security advisory across Australia Pacific.


Some projects Carla has led for her clients include:
  • Corruption risk assessment for a mining client operating in Papua New Guinea. The client wanted to institute an anti-bribery and corruption program (ABC), conduct a risk assessment and draft an ABC policy. Interviews and document review was conducted on site, as well as a training session and workshop to rank the risks identified. The review was used to inform the drafting of an ABC policy and recommend the appointment of a compliance officer responsible for ABC. 
  • Due diligence investigation on behalf of a client considering partnering in a high-risk mining venture in Papua New Guinea. The client wanted to understand the company holding the mining licence, its management, motivations and ultimate stakeholders. The client also wanted to understand the political figures that would have an impact in the project. The client decided the venture was too high risk to enter into.
  • Comprehensive pre-employment screens on all new recruits being employed for “sensitive” areas of a client’s multinational trading business, confirming their professional backgrounds and ensuring their integrity. This was achieved through a mix of public record research and overt enquires. 
  • Investigation on behalf of a client that had suffered a sensitive corporate information leak that had a serious impact on staff morale. Carla helped to identify the employee responsible.
  • Ethical behaviour training for the entire executive team of an ASX100 company. The training, which is part of the client’s corporate compliance programme, dealt with the issues of corruption through the lens of ethical behaviour and focused on embedding an ethical culture. 


Prior to joining Control Risks, Carla worked as an intelligence analyst for the New South Wales Crime Commission, working on criminal investigations. She conducted extensive work in the areas of firearms-related crime, ethnic gangs, the manufacture and distribution of illicit drugs, money laundering and unsolved murder investigations. 

Carla holds a bachelor of economics from the University of Sydney. She is also a certified fraud examiner.
