Events

Security and privacy are often misunderstood. For years both topics have been misrepresented and communicated in ways that simply don’t align with our interests.

I deliver talks that help the audience understand the impact of technology on our communities and why it matters to them. Delivered through a security and privacy lens, these messages have resonated with thousands of people around the world.

Interested? I’d be happy to have a chat about supporting your event, please get in touch or learn more.

  • 19-Sep-2019 // CloudSec Toronto
    I actually gave two talks at this event. The first was really a conversation seed, “Cloud in Canada: Where are we now?", in which I highlighted the challenges around cloud adoption in Canada.
    The second talk I gave was a modified version of the talk, “Advanced security automation made simple”, that I’ve been giving at AWS Summit’s this year. The CloudSec version provided examples from not only AWS but Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform as well. This approach really highlighted the concepts behind the approach showing these techniques can be implement in any of the big three clouds.
