One of the most popular authors in the field of cybersecurity and social engineering, Raefs’ titles include the highly rated, global best seller, Cybersecurity for Beginners, the frequently evolving Cybersecurity to English Dictionary and How to Hack a Human; an exploration of how easily us humans can be controlled and influenced. His experience includes running eight digit security budgets, consulting on security at over 50 different organizations, designing a multi-million-pound security software platform, training as a hypnotist (yes, you read that correctly) and occasionally flying helicopters.
In addition to making public appearances at countless conferences across Europe, the UK and the US, he is also a frequent provider of commentary for multiple technologies and mainstream news outlets and has appeared in Infosec magazine, ZDNet, TechTarget, TEISS and on Sky broadcast news.
Before entering the world of cybersecurity, Raef trained and operated as a sales and negotiation professional in the health insurance sector, then successfully managed a national business start-up for a financial services company before spending several years as a management consultant – a role that led him to build and develop the security framework and global supplier audit service for a US Fortune 20 company.
His hard-won knowledge is based on real-world incidents combined with extensive research into technology trends. His keynote delivery style is to combine humour with deep insights and effective story-telling adapted to inspire each audience.
Although continuing to provide some boutique cybersecurity consultancy services, he now earns his living primarily from sharing his passion for understanding and communicating security risks and technology trends, especially in the context of their human factors and impact.
