I had the pleasure of working with Brett Williams on a virtual cybersecurity event recently. From our first pre-event meeting to the post-event follow up, Brett impressed me with his attention to detail, expertise on the subject of cybersecurity, and his ability to quickly understand our event goals and align to support them. Our event was a tremendous success and we're already talking about our next engagement with him. Thank You, Brett!

The feedback on the conference has been excellent. Having Brett as the keynote speaker really solidified the program and brought it to a higher level. This role is especially difficult, but the ease with which he worked the stage and the audience was remarkable.

Major Williams was AWESOME….not only professionally, but personally as well. We had so many great comments from our attendees regarding his presentation and he made a lasting impression on our leadership.
Florida Association of Insurance Agents
We recently had MG Williams come speak to our Board of Directors at our annual Fall Membership Meeting about cyber security and cyber crime. His presentation was lauded by my membership for his ability to communicate the depth of the problems faced by modern businesses operating in the online environment, and the types of action that must be considered by anyone in business today whose operations may be jeopardized by cyber crime. I highly recommend him to others similarly situated.

General Brett T. Williams exceeded our expectations as the keynote speaker of AccessIT Group’s 12th Annual Cyber Security Symposium. Not only was his address very engaging and full of rich information, but General Williams was also very personable and easily related to the senior managers and CISOs that attended the event. Our team really enjoyed the ease of working with him and would hire him to speak again at other events.

Cyberwar—Is America Ready?

The U.S. is under attack from a variety of nation-state actors and this has implications for business professionals as well as Americans in their private lives.  General Williams provides his perspective on the current cyber threat landscape, discusses challenges that we have as a nation in addressing this threat and provides his perspective on how business leaders and technical professionals can work better together to counter the increasingly sophisticated cyber threat.

Cybersecurity—An Executive Approach to a Technical Challenge

Brett Williams’ keynote helps close the gap in language, perception and understanding between senior executives and the technical people charged with defending our networks.  He is an expert at identifying the key technical cybersecurity issues and translating those issues into the language of business.  Brett equips his audience to ask the CIO and CISO tough questions, and more importantly, to understand the answers.  Each keynote is customized to the audience and includes a discussion of the current threat environment, costs associated with a breach, an executive primer on current cyber defense techniques and suggestions on how to identify the essential elements of a good cyber defense program.  Every participant will walk out the door with specific action items they can immediately put into action.
