What's that did you say, a Security Meetup, not just for Security folk?! Madness!

We constantly hear it said that humans are the weakest link in Cyber Security which creates a negative picture around their involvement in securing businesses.

What if we change the conversation and create opportunities to better empower them?

What might happen if we can tap in to our greatest asset in the fight against cybercrime - our employees?

We are very excited announce our next speaker, industry expert Louisa Vogelenzang who will be answering some of these key questions and more! Louisa can talk Security to Security people all day, but she has a real passion for talking to people from all walks of life and giving them easy to digest advice on key things they need to be aware of to remain secure and what they can do with limited to no Security resources or expertise.

Event details:
5:30pm - Networking (drinks, snacks)
6:15pm - Louisa's presentation followed by Q&A
7:00pm - Networking
7:30pm - Doors close
