We all know how hard it is to get people to take Cybersecurity seriously.
The constant “we are too small to be a target” “we have nothing of value” and “we have nothing worth stealing” makes education a primary component of business security.
Roger has developed and delivered an undergraduate course that is solely based on getting students to understand the dangers of the digital world and how to protect themselves, their organisations and to understand that there is always someone out there that will have a significant impact on their cyber persona..
He is also a highly entertaining keynote speaker that gets the audience involved in his vision of a safer and more secure cyber world.
