Danny Pehar,
Managing Director, Cybersecurity Awareness Training

Danny Pehar, Managing Director, Cybersecurity Awareness Training , is a trail-blazer in the critical area of cyber education and training for employees, management, and Board members of organizations, whether they are corporations, governments, or non-profits.

Today, every organization must have cybersecurity awareness training baked into its overall business strategy. It is no longer an option or a frill.

Specializing in cybersecurity, cyber risk and cyber insurance, Danny brings more than 18 years of experience to Cytelligence and its clients. He is a new breed of cyber educator and trainer whose powerful messages resonate with Board members, executives, managers, and employees alike.

He understands that in order for any type of employee cybersecurity training to be effective, it needs to be engaging. Employees can't learn if they are too bored to pay attention.

Cybersecurity awareness training also needs to be empowering. Employees need to feel like they are making a difference. Danny's work as a comedian and motivational speaker—with fans in Canada, the U.S., and Europe—combined with his cybersecurity experience, allows him to bring a truly unique perspective to cybersecurity awareness training.

Whether educating CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, new employees or even elementary school students, Danny uses his stage experience and lengthy cybersecurity background to engage, empower, and educate employees to affect behaviour change. The results? Safer cybersecurity practices, both at work and at home.

Danny has educated professionals throughout North America and Europe on cybersecurity awareness across a broad range of industries including: critical infrastructure, banking and finance, insurance, non-profit, e-commerce, telecommunication, retail, manufacturing and engineering. Consistently, Danny's audiences give him rave reviews.

He is the co-founder and lead instructor of Cyber Insurance Education, as well as an accredited RIBO cyber risk instructor. Danny sits on the Board of directors of InfoSecTO and works closely with the cyber risk task force branches of the FBI and Toronto Police Service.

Danny is a best-selling author of "Awesome at Being Awesome: A Self-Help Book for People Who Hate Self-Help Books."

Danny has published many articles on cybersecurity. He's a regular speaker at various cybersecurity conferences including SecTor, MISA, InfoSecTO, Canadian ISP Summit, TASK, ISC2, and TMAC. He has also been interviewed on CP24, Global Television, and CityTV.
