Stacey Natasha Russell is a law graduate and versatile communicator with a passion for promoting awareness of cyber security, and data privacy and regulation. Her ambition is fuelled by personal data and financial loss resulting from a phishing attack that led to her password being compromised while living in England.
Ms Russell counsels a cross section of digital end users in online safety as an Ambassador for the United Kingdom-based charity, Get Safe Online. Get Safe Online continues to be a leading source of unbiased, factual and easy-to-understand information regarding online safety from 2006 to present. The organisation now has a presence in 23 countries around the world, including Barbados and Jamaica.
In her presentations, she brings to bear her experience of more than 20 years in journalism and media-communications in the Caribbean and United Kingdom, as well as her training in law.
Her personal loss to cyber crime, and the fact that this complex area of law needs to be championed to protect people from data and financial loss, as well as psychological harm keep her motivated.
Ms Russell holds a Bachelor of Social Science in Communication from the University of Guyana; a Bachelor of Laws from the University of London, and a Master of Laws in Media Law, Policy and Practice from the University of East Anglia in England.
