The Reality of Infrastructure Security in the Cloud: Tales from Industry Evening Talk

The BCS Student Chapter Computer Society hosted an amazing event where Thomas Owen gave a talk entitled The Reality of Infrastructure Security in the Cloud: Tales from Industry.

London Met's BCS Student Chapter Computer Society, in partnership with the School of Computing and Digital Media, recently invited Thomas Owen, Head of Security and Data Protection Lead at MEMSET Hosting Ltd, for an evening talk about the current hot topic of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The event was an excellent opportunity for the MEMSET team to meet our Cyber Security teaching and research group, SCDM students and other BCS professionals.

Thomas, along with Richard Ripley, gave an insightful talk entitled The Reality of Infrastructure Security in the Cloud: Tales from Industry. He focussed on how to succeed in gaining compliance with new data protection regulation in the industry and also how to secure organisations against security threats, foreign and domestic. Thomas also shared his experience in helping MEMSET reach commercial success through the adoption of strong security practices and the creation of high-security utility Cloud hosting as a core element of the brand.

Dr Deepthi Ratnayake, London Met academic, coordinated this student-led event for the benefit of undergraduate and postgraduate students from the computer networking, cyber security and digital forensics disciplines.

We'd like to offer special thanks to the BCS Student Chapter Computer Society at London Met and our guest speakers for the successful event.
