Thought Leadership

I have 20+ years of experience in the Healthcare IT industry in a variety of roles including Cybersecurity software and services. During this time, I have seen numerous speakers on the topic of Cybersecurity and Ali Pabrai is among the best.

He covers the state of the industry, healthcare-specific regulations, process, product, best practices and call- to-action takeaways in a manner that can be understood at multiple levels including technical, clinical, supply chain, and executive.

Ali also weaves in stories and humor to keep the audience engaged on what can be a dry yet frightening topic. I highly recommend Ali Pabrai as a speaker, trainer and consultant in this area.

We have had the true pleasure of working with Ali Pabrai at conferences all over the world during the past few years – with one unanimous word that keeps resounding among audiences and staff alike – AWESOME!

He is a tremendously engaging and knowledgeable presenter who is able to distill the essence of complex cybersecurity topics into comprehensible and actionable components for both highly skilled, technical audiences as well as those who are just entering or transitioning into the security part of the IT industry. His “behind the curtain” professionalism and enthusiastic willingness to help develop, customize and deliver great content paired with his absolute commitment to professionalism as a presenter and doing what it takes is a rare combination. We greatly look forward to working with Mr. Pabrai each and every time and know he will deliver excellence.
