McKinsey Consultant Turned Into Cyber Security Keynote Speaker Training Top UK CEOs on Cybersecurity

The Speed Traders

Posted 2nd August 2017.

Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street, partnering with Terrapinn Training in 3-Day Masterclass Cybersecurity to bring key insights for CEOs and board members on cyber security.

London, UK — Mr. Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street, is addressing senior executives from the United Kingdom and Europe at 3-Day Masterclass Cybersecurity organized by Terrapinn Training. Perez is a well-known international futurist and keynote speaker who currently offers Cybersecurity Due Diligence and Awareness Training services for Fortune 500 firms and private equity groups (http://www.mredgarperez.com/index.php/cybersecurity-awareness-phishing-training-today).

As information technology becomes ever more complex and Internet usage increasingly widespread, cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important and business-critical field. Unfortunately, most organizations are not prepared to handle cybersecurity threats. In fact, 66% of IT and security professionals say that their firms are unprepared to recover from a cyberattack. A key example of this unpreparedness is the fact that many of the companies impacted by the recent WannaCry attack didn’t install critical updates into their Windows infrastructure that had been released by Microsoft back in March.

Perez’s workshops bring CEOs, board members and top executives up to speed on the most recent and battle-tested approaches to protect their companies’ valuable information and intellectual property from prying eyes of hackers and competitors, and leverage their cyber success in both cultivating stronger relationships with current and new clients and safeguarding the interests of all stakeholders, partners and employees.

Perez (http://www.mredgarperez.com), author of Knightmare on Wall Street (http://www.knightmareonwallstreet.com) and The Speed Traders (http://www.thespeedtraders.com), is a recognized futurist, keynote speaker and director of programs targeted at board members, chief executive officers and senior executives looking for new ways to gain and maintain a competitive business advantage.
