Ted - foto-sebastian-gabsch_52460160999_o.jpg




I take your audience into the world of ethical hacking. I help them experience the wild, unexpected, often shocking stories of both companies who got security right, and those who didn't.

I then extract the key insights from those stories, translating them into advice your audience can go implement. (Much of which, I cover in my  #1 bestselling book Hackable).

Your audience will learn exactly what to do, why to do it, and how.

Hacking the Future

With most new breakthroughs in technology there are also people looking to exploit that new technology. What exciting new opportunities will new tech make possible? Will artificial intelligence develop to a point where we can’t defend against it? How do we better secure our brands and companies as AI becomes more powerful?
