Events & Speaking

We regularly provide award winning speakers for lots of events.

Having an energised and informed speaker who will reach your audience can mean the difference between your people just nodding knowingly or making the time to implement the things that matter.

We provide award winning speakers for lots of events.

Over the years we been have been invited to speak at a huge range of events, and not all are security focussed. Where there is a platform to help shape sensible opinion, promote secure behaviours and better ways of doing things, we will gladly get involved – depending on availability of course.

“Speaking” doesn’t really cover it though. As no one enjoys a slow death by PowerPoint our presentations usually contain demonstrations with devices and props. What they never contain are irritating sales pitches. We don’t promote pen testing when presenting at conferences and events; we simply want to help people to learn and understand in an interesting environment.

We’ve even won awards!

Where to find us, and what you can expect

We can provide keynote speakers who will engage and inspire audiences. From the jaded SysAdmin to the FD who hasn’t yet found a way to put a bottom-line benefit on security spend, we can help you tell the full story.

From DEF CON, Black Hat, 44Con, and BSides, through to PCI community events, OWASP chapter meetings, and IoT industry conferences, we have a busy speaking calendar, covering areas such as: IoT device hacking, secure coding, hardware hacking workshops, SCADA and process control security, cyber insurance and social media privacy and security.

If you have a requirement for a particular topic just get in touch. Call us on 020 3095 0500 for a sensible chat and maybe book us for your next event.
