Abstract

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Our AGM is an important opportunity to influence plans for future talks and events and also to JOIN THE COMMITTEE. We have had a number of retirals and are particularly keen to recruit new members from an industrial background.

If you wish to join us please COME EARLY and make yourself known to Jon Tyler, Norman Bain or Peter Gray during the coffee period from 6 PM. We are especially keen to recruit a YOUNG PROFESSIONAL, recently started working in IT.

Following our short AGM Peter Gray will introduce extracts from a number of talk-videos on "RANSOMWARE, and the Role of Hackers", using them as discussion starters.

The Speakers will include:

  • James Lyne (Sophos)
  • Leo (PC Security Channel)
  • Keren Elazari (TED talk on Hackers)

This is your chance to learn more about these increasingly worrying developments and to exchange views and experience with other members.
