Ben Owen's Biography
Ben Owen is an internationally recognised expert in covert operations, surveillance and online investigations with over 23 years’ experience working at the very height of national security, military operations and now the private sector. Ben’s experience is leading large covert operations across the U.K. and abroad to combat counter terrorism, counter proliferation and counter espionage operations and attacks against the U.K. and its allies. Ben’s main role was to lead, direct and manage covert operational teams to gather intelligence against individuals and groups of national security in very high paced and pressured environments.
Ben Owen is a global ‘hunter’ featuring in the Australian, British and U.S. versions of the hit TV show called ‘Hunted’. Ben features as the Head of Intelligence in the Australian version which is already one of the most popular TV shows in the country. Ben was previously ‘The Boss’ on the U.K. version. Ben also appears on a number of other TV productions and news channels discussing operational and security issues throughout the globe.
Ben was integral in thwarting a number of high-profile terrorist cells and attack planning operations. Prior to joining the British intelligence services, Ben was a Sniper in the British Forces. Ben served in Cyprus, Kuwait and also deployed on the first missions over the border into Iraq in GWII, aged just 19-years old.
Ben’s keynotes are delivered in a highly engaging and enthusiastic way that fully engages audiences into whatever the subject is. From growing up in poverty and starting his career as a cleaner cleaning the school he studied in, to starring in a global TV show, he really does have many topics covered, from resilience and determination, leadership, cyber security, intelligence operations, ‘Hunted’ the global TV brand and much more.
Speaking Topics Include
‘Hunted’ a global TV show - Ben provides an incredible overview of the concept and the thrill of the ‘chase’. He discusses mindsets, what makes good hunters and fugitives alike and whether you can really ‘disappear’ in today’s surveillance states.
Digital data in the modern world - Ben discusses how the digital landscape has changed significantly post pandemic. Companies are now mostly remote, around 75% in fact, but with remote work forces comes danger, but how do we stay safe?
How safe are you online? - Ben demonstrates a live hacking session where he illustrates just how much data we all give away each day. From leaving your house for work in the morning to the moment you return, you leave 100’s of digital breadcrumbs to be found by the bad guys.
Leadership - Ben has been a leader since the age of 19 where he was thrusted into leading sensitive military operations as a sniper. He then led operational teams to gather intelligence on some of the world’s most dangerous people. He will discuss numerous situations where leadership skills have been tested and impart knowledge and experiences.
