 Keynote Speakers

Siddika Jessa, Service Manager TLD Computers (new Sophos partner)


How to Develop a Security Conscious Lens and the Tools to Help You Do It

“Imagine having an alarm system in your home, top notch locks, and forgetting to alarm your home or leaving the door unlocked because you thought someone else had already locked it”.  Security is only as good as the way people use it.  

 What can businesses do to help develop a security conscious lens and ensure that people and tools work together to keep their business secure?

Siddika brings a practical approach to understanding security by looking at the human behavior aspect in the workplace. Using the understanding of the Cybersecurity Framework, she brings a simple strategy that businesses can use to help them keep their businesses secure so that they can focus on their core business. Siddika’s experience in being part of a security team during an espionage attempt and her long history of understanding, supporting and managing industry leading technologies while developing teams, makes her a multitalented contributor with a practical approach to helping businesses meet their needs.  

“SUCCESS isn’t just about what you accomplish in your life, it’s about what you inspire others to do”
