Edgar Perez, book author, keynote speaker and former strategy consultant with McKinsey, partnering with Terrapinn Training in 3-Day Masterclass in Cybersecurity in London, Dubai, Singapore and New York
How companies can learn to protect their information from internal and external cyber threats is one of the key topics to be developed by well-known keynote speaker and trainer Edgar Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, in his upcoming 3-Day Masterclass in Cybersecurity in Singapore, London, Dubai and New York.
Over and over the news comes as a surprise for most of the unsuspecting users who relied on services provided by companies that didn’t have the appropriate protections of their data in place. Over and over as well it has been demonstrated that hackers didn’t have to exhibit rocket-science sophistication to infiltrate the best-run organizations, at least from the outside. Most of the time it was a single failure of an employee who didn’t stay up to date with regard to vulnerabilities in applications they were widely using, which could have been detected with monthly vulnerabilities scans.
“There is not even a place in purgatory for these employees, as many of these vulnerabilities could have been fixed by installing available updates provided by the developers,” says Perez; he is a well-known international futurist, artificial intelligence and deep learning speaker who currently offers as well the world’s first Deep Learning workshop for Fortune 500 firms and private equity groups.
