Public Speaking

An accomplished public speaker, I’ve given keynote talks for some of the world’s biggest brands, including Microsoft, Mastercard, Atos, Orange and Bank of America. I’ve spoken at venues ranging from London’s Chatham House think-tank to the Latitude music festival, and from the Conservative Party Conference to London’s Science Museum. For rates and availability, contact Geoff.

Here are some of the topics I cover:

From global money laundering networks to intricate fraud campaigns, Geoff has explored the inner workings of the organised crime groups whose nefarious activities are costing businesses billions, and leaving law enforcement agencies struggling to keep up. His insights offer invaluable lessons for organisations trying to defend against an increasingly complex threat.
He has delivered compelling keynote talks for some of the world’s biggest financial brands, from Mastercard to the World Bank.

Geoff first started covering Bitcoin in 2011, when each coin was worth just a few dollars (compared to tens of thousands today). He has investigated some of the biggest cryptocurrency thefts in history, including the legendary Mt Gox hack of 2014, and the billion-dollar crypto-crime campaign waged by North Korea. He has also tracked crypto’s use a key money laundering vector.
Changpeng Zhao, CEO of the world’s biggest crypto firm Binance, named Geoff’s book on North Korean hacking as his pick for 2022, tweeting: “If you hold crypto, you need to know the basics of security”.

With more than a decade of experience covering computer hacking for the likes of Channel 4 News, BBC News and Forbes online, Geoff is one of the world’s leading journalists in this field. From ransomware to business email compromise to nation-state attacks, he has delved deep into the tactics that cyber crime gangs use to target their victims, and shares the insights that can help organisations protect themselves from attack.
He has given keynote talks for leading tech security companies and at major conferences including DefCon and InfoSec.
