Cyber Security for The Rest of Us

The days of “security through obscurity” are over. Companies of all sizes are being targeted successfully today by cyber adversaries. Though cyber security is not a choice, how we go about it is. This is especially important for small to medium size businesses who cannot take the same approaches of larger organizations. Cyber Security is not a destination we ever “arrive” at but a process that must be committed to every day going forward. Are you prepared?

Keynote Speaker

Derek Randall Harp is a keynote speaker available for presentations at corporate events and conferences. He presents to audiences all over the world on a few subjects but most often on cybersecurity “for the rest of us”. He is a motivational and educational speaker whose ideas on how small to medium size business owners and managers can approach cyber security are valuable to audiences everywhere.
