Jeremy Samide *CEO of Stealthcare cyber security crisis firm

How to Prevent an Advanced Internet Invasion

Jeremy is a sought after Cybersecurity speaker in the areas of next generation security threats for Insurance companies, Banks and all manner of Corporations in Canada, Germany, Italy, Morocco, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and across the USA. As a leading Cybersecurity expert with over 17 years of private sector, government security consulting and research and development work. Jeremy’s expertise in the analytical, technical, advisory and tactical knowledge of next generation cyber security threats will speak to the signs that a cyber attack is imminent and how to prevent it.

Cyber security amongst nation states, rogue states and hacker collective groups (Hacktivism) has become a center of gravity for conflict. Governments, corporations of all sizes, high net worth families and individuals have all fallen victim to large scale data breaches, which have resulted in billions of dollars in damage, lost productivity, theft and reputational risk. There is an upward trend in both random and targeted attacks that are politically, socially and financially driven. Zero day exploits are having a global economic impact. The use of malware, phishing attacks and ransomware are continuing unabated. Hackers are successfully transforming from cutting edge pranksters to high profile cyber terrorists. These non-state actors will serve as a platform for state sponsored groups who will begin to carry out their methods.

Have you been compromised? Understand the innerworkings of the deep and dark web, who’s down there, why and dispel the myths behind hackers and their ill-gotten scores. Learn valuable, practical steps about how to protect your family, tangible assets, your business and your reputation by developing an in-depth cyber defense.
