The Herjavec Group 2019 Official Annual Cybercrime Report points to the prediction that cybercrime will cost the world in excess of $6 trillion each year by 2021. They note that cyber attacks are the fastest growing crime in the US, growing all the more complex and costly. As the population grows and the number of human and digital targets increase, protecting your business is harder to do each year. Cyber security keynote speakers can help prepare your organization.
The United States is the number one target for targeted cyber attacks, and every data breach to a US company costs an average of nearly $8 million. The numbers show that dealing with cybercrime is an unfortunate reality for companies of all types and sizes. Cyber security keynote speakers are uniquely positioned experts who can educate your employees and create engagement with this issue.
There are many ways to protect your organization from cyber crime, from investing in technology to training your employees on best practices to prevent data breaches and hacking. Cyber security keynote speakers play an important role in that education. While you can leave it to your IT department to put the technical pieces into place, any solution to cybercrime has to come with a corporate culture shift, and buy-in from stakeholders and employees. This is especially the case if these cyber security strategies reflect a shift from long-held practices.
Cyber security keynote speakers with knowledge and experience offer credible solutions that have been proven to work. It’s a lot easier for everyone to learn from someone who has already tackled the problems you are just beginning to face. And, let’s face it, it’s also more exciting and entertaining to learn from a big name in cyber security versus than to sit through an in-house IT presentation.
Cyber security keynote speakers know how to expertly blend storytelling and vital information, increasing audience engagement around this incredibly important topic. Our speakers bureau boasts cyber security speakers with expertise and significant credentials in the field. Here is a sampling of the talent available to you.
