The most you will learn from Michael is from the the stories of the practical experience that he has gained at FBI for over a decade. Other than sharing his life experience, he will focus on following topics:

The different types of cyber attacks
The different ways threat actors attack organizations
How threat actors think and target their victims
How to address various cyber attacks
The most effective ways to develop internal programs to address cyber threats
What works and what doesn’t when it comes to cyber threat defense


In this fast paced, volatile world, this workshop is essential for leaders who want to learn from someone who has been there and done that. It is for:

  • CIOs, CISO and security analysts
  • Technical security staffs, system administrators and tech team members such as programmers
  • Security and penetration testing team members
  • Business leaders and innovators who want to protect their customers and their own reputation

Do not miss the workshop on one of the most crucial aspects of your organisation and customers’ safety, cyber security! 



Michael has given more than 500 presentations and workshops on cyber security to several Fortune 500 companies like Coca-Cola, UPS, Delta etc. A skilled and engaging speaker with a wealth of professional experience, he spent nearly 14 years with the FBI before joining DEVCON as Head of Global Cyber Investigations and Government Relations.

At FBI Michael gained a full, robust picture of the threat landscape. There he led numerous, expansive investigations including one that resulted in the first federal conviction of a US person for the use of a peer-to peer (P2P) botnet. He also led the Cyber program for the Atlanta FBI office, during which he oversaw countless number of arrests, search warrants and dismantlement of threat actors.

He draws from his experience in combating both criminal and nation state threats to craft thought provoking and impactful presentations.
