Speaking Engagements with Ted Shafran

Toronto’s Cybersecurity & Managed Services Expert

Upgrading your team’s Cybersecurity Skills is as easy as 1, 2, 3

With over 40 years of experience in Information Technology and Software Development, Ted Shafran has witnessed firsthand the incredible pace of change in IT. And while those advancements have made us more productive and had a positive impact on the ways many of us live our lives, it has also caused an epidemic of Cyber Crime, the likes of which small businesses have never seen. Unfortunately, Cyber Crime is only going to get worse as technology becomes more and more complex. That’s why it’s so important that business of all sizes invest in cybersecurity solutions, and focus on continually educating their teams about what they need to do to avoid cyber-attacks, data breaches and Ransomware infections.

As the owner of a Managed IT and Cybersecurity firm, and the author of the book, The Business Owner’s Common-Sense Guide To Trouble-Free IT, Ted has decades of experience managing and deploying cyber solutions, so he is uniquely qualified to help educate other businesses about cybersecurity threats, best practices, and tips for implementing and ensuring compliance with those best practices. Plus, Ted is a seasoned speaker with dozens of conferences and industry events under his belt. Ted has a knack for explaining complex technical subjects in a clear, concise and easy to understand manner. If you are located in Southern Ontario and would like Ted to speak to your company, association, or chamber, please submit the form above and someone from our office will be in touch with you to discuss.
