IT Security Speakers

IT / cybersecurity is one of the greatest concerns in the 21st century. Any organization with sensitive data, be that personnel records or intellectual property, must properly understand the threat their IT systems face; why protecting them is of paramount importance; and what can actually be done in terms of defensive strategies.

Our IT and cybersecurity keynote speakers address a variety of topics, from enterprise computer security to specific hacks cyber criminals use to steal private information and/or corrupt internal networks. Some of the speakers we represent include the United States’ past cyber security coordinator; pioneers in the fields of data analytics and online systems; and infamous hackers now using their expertise to tech others how to strengthen their security systems.

An IT security expert can work with your in-house IT team to identify potential weaknesses in the security infrastructure and to remedy them. Alternatively, you might want a charismatic, well-informed speaker to address the company at large, teaching staff at a basic level why cybersecurity is essential and what they, individually and within their departments, should be doing to keep systems secure and data private.
