Dr Jessica Barker MBE is a best-selling author and international keynote speaker. An award-winning leader in the human side of cyber security, she has delivered face-to-face awareness sessions to over 50,000 people. Jessica is the go-to cyber expert for media including the BBC, Sky News and Wired magazine and she has delivered over 80 keynotes, including NATO, the World Government Summit, and RSA San Francisco.
Jessica is Co-Founder of the cyber security company Cygenta, where she focuses on her purpose to advance cyber security awareness, behaviour, and culture in organisations around the world. She serves on numerous industry boards, including the UK Government Cyber Security Advisory Board. The author of ‘Confident Cyber Security’ and co-author of ‘Cybersecurity ABCs’, she helps audiences around the world understand why people are the heart of cyber security. In June 2023, Jessica was awarded an MBE for services to cyber security by King Charles III in his first Birthday Honours.
When Jessica is not working, she loves learning and so over the years she has taken classes in everything from horse riding to singing to circus skills. Born in the UK, she now lives in Las Vegas with her husband FC and their cat Bubble.
Jessica uses a mac and Keynote. On occasion, she can be convinced to resort to PowerPoint (but don't make me be the one to ask her!).
Jessica currently presents on a 13″ MacBook Air complete with her own bag of cables that includes a selection of HDMI connectors and a wireless presentation “clicker.” Her presentations are formatted to fit a 16x9 screen.
Jessica needs you to provide a mic (head mounted, lavaliere mic, hand held in that order of preference). She does not like to present from a lectern if possible, because she likes to use her presentations to bring up her step count.
The only other things Jessica needs you to provide are a projector and power socket. If there is water and a visible clock / time count then your event will get a gold star.
