Breakwater IT Announce Global Security Speaker for Online Conference

We are excited to announce that our keynote speaker for our upcoming Cyber Security Conference is well-known ethical hacker and social engineer, FC (also known as Freaky Clown).

FC has been working in the information security field for over 20 years and excels at circumventing access controls. As an ethical hacker and social engineer, FC ‘breaks into’ hundreds of banks, offices and government facilities around the world. His work demonstrating weaknesses in physical, personnel and digital controls assists organisations to improve their security. 

FC will be highlighting the change in mindset when working from home compared to an office or more secure location. He will be focusing on the type of attacks your business should be paying attention to, as well and how you protect yourself and your business.

The annual conference, previously held in December, has been brought forward this year in response to the dramatic changes to our working environments due to COVID-19. 

As a result of the pandemic, businesses have had to adapt to employees working from home. In April 2020 the UK's Office for National Statistics released data showing that 49.2% of adults in employment were working from home. It is expected that many businesses will continue allowing staff to work from home or adopt a more flexible approach. With this comes a range of cyber threats, meaning security is not something to be overlooked. 

The agenda will also include talks from Breakwater IT Managing Director, John Gostling, and a guest from Mimecast. 

The conference is open to all businesses with no knowledge of security or IT needed. The aim of the event is to support businesses in their awareness of potential threats, and the steps that can be taken to prevent them.
