TITLE: BCS Shropshire - Branch Event and Christmas Social
Information Technology (IT) seems to be moving at such a pace. Even the IT professional finds it difficult to keep up. New technology more than ever is creating new opportunities, changing culture and exposing new threats. So much can be done on a smartphone now especially when linked to the internet. Not only smartphones but devices such as fridges interconnect via the “Internet Of Things”. However, this marvel brings threats such as the use of webcams to create massive Security (DDOS) attacks. With cloud computing we can now all benefit from massive scalability. Where will the opportunities be in all of this for us as professionals as well as consumers. How do we stay safe and reap the rewards?
