Ben Owen's 2022 talks & topics
‘Hunted’ a global TV show
Ben provides an incredible overview of the concept and the thrill of the ‘chase’. He discusses mindsets, what makes good hunters and fugitives alike and whether you can really ‘disappear’ in today’s surveillance states.
How safe are you online?
Ben demonstrates a live hacking session where he illustrates just how much data we all give away each day. From leaving your house for work in the morning to the moment you return, you leave 100’s of digital breadcrumbs to be found by the bad guys.
Digital data in the modern world
Ben discusses how the digital landscape has changed significantly post pandemic. Companies are now mostly remote, around 75% in fact, but with remote work forces comes danger, but how do we stay safe?
Ben has been a leader since the age of 19 where he was thrusted into leading sensitive military operations as a sniper. He then led operational teams to gather intelligence on some of the world’s most dangerous people. He will discuss numerous situations where leadership skills have been tested and impart knowledge and experiences.
Cyber Spies Vs. Cyber Criminals
In a digitally complex and dangerous world, the rise of cyber-crime is huge. Ben discusses how we can all remain safe and spot the signs of a cyber-criminal attempting to hack into your digital life.
