We’re excited to announce that Managing Director of FreeClix Peter Freeman is going to be a speaker at the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce’s Cyber Security Conference on 18th May 2017.
With new EU regulations on data protection coming into force in May 2018, the event aims to inform businesses on how to stay safe in the modern age of technology and avoid fines of up to €20m. The conference will cover topics such as trends in Cyber Security, The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), inside threats and preventing cyber-attacks.
Pete will be talking to guests about the different components of businesses networks that, if not implemented and maintained correctly, may be vulnerable to a cyber-attack . In his talk, he’ll cover the vulnerabilities of both wired & wireless networks, guest WiFi systems, wireless encryption types, unified threat management (UTM) and NAT, IPv4 & IPv6. Pete will also discuss with guests some ‘next steps’ and preventative measures that their businesses can take to reduce their risk of a cyber-attack.
Pete is a specialist in network design and security with over 20 years of experience and provides consultancy and services to organisations across the UK to defend them against IT security threats.
He founded FreeClix in 1999 as East Anglia’s first wireless Internet Service provider and today FreeClix continues as an internet communications & telecoms provider that designs, builds and maintains highly secure wide and local area networks for small to large businesses.
