Insecurities of the Internet
Just like art, technology is a soaring exercise of human ingenuity. I have always enjoyed bringing to insight imagination through driving technology advancements that form formidable solutions to problems in society.
The presentation will be discussing the following points:
My career goes beyond making money. I believe it’s a true expression of my passion, life purpose, and creativity. The result is that I am profoundly engaged, inquisitive, productive, and fulfilled.
With my growing expertise in information technology, I am a seasoned Cybersecurity Engineer with strong expertise in Cyber resilience strategy building, risk management adoption, vulnerability management and system penetration testing. I have presented at over 140 Cyber Security conferences, lectured at various universities, and contributed to cybersecurity publications.
I capitalize lean analytical and problem-solving skills to maximize network performance through Cyber Security tools, implementing load-balancing techniques, and steering system optimization. I am adept at streamlining processes, procedures and conceptualizing technological strategies to improve bottom-line performance, optimize system performance, productivity and increase profitability. I have submitted bugs to organizations such as Safaricom, Zuku, and Multichoice group in the past amongst many others pertaining to Cyber Security of systems.
Coupled with my skillset is a strong entrepreneurial instinct, that i engaged to pioneer the Cyber Security collective Africahackon. An organization that aims at the naturing talent in the Cyber Security space. Africahackon has converted over 60 professionals to practice Cybersecurity as their full-time job with the yearly conference drawing lots of professionals from across the globe and has ever since seen growth over the years.
I believe that those of us who are privileged enough to be educated, healthy, and part of powerful networks should not be doing easy things. The only way to justify our privilege is to do the hard things that society demands of us — to solve tough problems and create opportunities for others. I launched The Room to bring the most ambitious ‘doers’ together to do these hard things that will change the world. I welcome you to be a part of our story and join this global community as we make history together.Fred Swaniker
