What can you expect 
To understand where organisations need to be looking to improve their security posture in the year ahead, it makes sense to review the major threats that occurred during 2016.  In this discussion Michael will take a look at the year just past and help us to gain an insight into the threats that occurred and how these threats work.  Michael will also discuss the emerging threats that we will see in the start of 2017 and where organisations need to focus.  

In this talk he we will also do a live demonstration of a real-world ransomware attack, how it works and what occurs when someone is targeted.

Post this we will open the discussion to the floor and hope your thoughts and experiences.
