Speakers and Topics

“Data Privacy: Hackers are not the only threat”

Ross Saunders

Ross has a particular passion for data privacy, having been a victim of identity theft and seeing first hand the impact of data breaches on both individuals and organisations. He aims to help organisations manage their data effectively, avoiding the dangerous pitfalls they may not be aware of.

Having served on numerous InfoSec committees and managing multinational IT implementations, Ross has a unique insight into the way data is handled within businesses, with a keen eye for detail and mindset of ongoing compliance.

Ross holds a Masters Degree (Cum Laude) in the Management of Technology and Innovation, and is a proud member of the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa (PSASA) and the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).

In this talk, Ross highlights to all levels of business owners and entrepreneurs that they have a responsibility towards data security and data privacy. The talk details Ross’ own identity theft and the consequences thereof, as well as how other privacy breaches can originate from the least expected sources, regardless of industry. Professional speakers, trainers, and coaches have access to remarkable amounts of personal information, and the onus is upon them to protect it.

Attendees will walk away with knowledge of how easily breaches happen, as well as practical methods to safeguard themselves, their clients, and their business.

The Speaker Factor – do you have what it takes?
