Born and raised in a small city of Halifax, Canada, Nick Palmer grew up with a strong passion for technologies and intolerance to injustice. The mix of both and love of his life fuelled him to drop a successful career in the telecom sector in Canada to fly over the Atlantic Ocean to join the hunt for cybercriminals at Group-IB in 2014.
Nick is no stranger to challenges, in fact, he thrives on them. Few know that Nick joined Group-IB as an English teacher without much knowledge in cybersecurity but found his way to become one of Group-IB's best assets over the years. Nick, driven by his inborn passion for IT and appetite to change the game, has progressed through the company from a key account manager to become Head of Group-IB's Global Business with teams reporting to him spanning Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Spain, South Africa, Italy, UAE, the UK, and the Netherlands.
Nick became the first person to reach $1 million internationally in the company within just his first year at Group-IB's business development team. Group-IB's unique ecosystem which fosters internal entrepreneurship is an integral part the company's DNA and Nick is a case in point. The company's international revenues continue to grow exponentially year over year under Nick's guidance and so does his team' geographical presence.
He is a regular speaker at industry's major events like RSA, INTERPOL World FS-ISAO summits, CyberCrimeCon and many others. Nick believes that a salesperson should have an incredible level of technical knowledge, not to rely on technical teams to do their selling for them. To fix a problem, you must first understand it. He speaks the same language with any CISO or cybersecurity specialist and requires the same from his team. What Nick enjoys most in his job is the investigation of evildoers that cause a problem to the world and bringing them to justice in close cooperation with international law enforcement.
