“EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE INTERNET” – PRESENTATION

Details to follow

This presentation is by a Cyber Security Expert and he will be talking to us about the real delights of the Internet and how we all need to make sure we are safer on-line. Not only do we take a light-hearted view of the cloud based accounting but also“contactless” debit cards and the new home devices that talk back to you after asking a question.

It is not just a case of keeping our homes safe but also our children on the internet and the truth behind the websites we all access. It is also crucial to know how this all impacts on the work we do on computers and laptops at work and how it is easy to hack any system.

More details to follow!
