Edgar Perez Speaking Topics

  • Social Engineering: The “Weakest Human Link” in Cybersecurity

    Social engineering involves tricking your employees into breaching security protocols or giving away information. Social engineering exploits human weaknesses rather than technology, preying upon people’s propensity towards trust. Often, these exploits are used to gather information to support a more targeted cyberattack, with the initial forays based on the premise of ‘little and often’ so as not to cause concern. Employees at all levels, including senior executives, are vulnerable. Mr. Edgar Perez will explain why by improving employee awareness and introducing simple technical measures, organizations can improve their protection against social engineering techniques and the risk of a cyberattack.

  • The Artificial Intelligence Breakthroughs that are Changing the Digital World

    Artificial intelligence (AI) has been referred as the general ability of computers to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. Through a comprehensive review of the latest artificial intelligence breakthroughs, Mr. Edgar Perez will offer his insights on how these advancements will impact businesses and the human race in general for years to come, and more specifically, how companies can leverage the plethora of available resources to start their digital transformation and implement solutions to formerly intractable problems. Mr. Perez will reveal why AI is the present and the future.

  • Is the Global Race to Achieve Quantum Supremacy Coming to an End?

    Google recently announced that their most advanced quantum computer, a radically new design to manipulate and process information, has achieved “quantum supremacy” for the first time. The technology giant's Sycamore quantum processor was able to perform an incredibly complex task in 200 seconds, a feat that would take the world's fastest supercomputers 10,000 years to complete. The ultimate development and commercialization of this technology will tremendously accelerate difficult tasks across all industries, including financial services, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and the upcoming space exploration. Are we really there yet? Mr. Edgar Perez will enlighten your audience with the latest head-turning business applications of this revolutionary technology.

  • Bitcoin is dead. Long live Ethereum and CBDCs

    The blockchain has been declared as a big revolution in business technology; it is indeed a game-changer for a global financial system that needs an upgrade. A more exciting development has been the booming rise in speculative cryptocurrencies based on blockchain technology, from Bitcoin to Ether. This surge has attracted a new generation of crypto bulls who see these crypto currencies as the cash of the future. Meanwhile, central banks and policymakers around the world explore ways to introduce Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs). If you buy Bitcoin now, Mr. Edgar Perez says, do it at your own peril. Instead, he explains, it is time to explore the future with Ethereum or other platforms that implement smart contracts; ultimately, let’s be prepared to embrace the new realities of CBDCs’ widespread deployment.

  • Welcome to the Metaverse: The Next Evolution of the Internet
