Peter Wood is our guest speaker this month, Cyber Consultant, Race Driver and Musician.

'Having spent time with Peter I can honestly say that he is someone who has in-depth knowledge in the area of Information Security and is someone who is passionate about his work and sharing his skills and knowledge with those willing to listen. Peter's presentation style makes the otherwise boring topic of security an educational and extremely entertaining one.' quoted by Brian Honan, Internationally recognized expert on cybersecurity and data protection.

The nature of today's sophisticated attacks means that organisations must prepare now to deal with severe impacts from cyber threats that cannot always be predicted or prevented. There is no 'silver bullet' solution, rather a strategy of cyber resilience is needed to deliver the agility to prevent, detect and respond quickly and effectively, not just to incidents, but also to the consequences of the incidents.
