Hampshire business event turns Internet threats into opportunities

A free event is taking place in Basingstoke on October 7 to guide entrepreneurs, businesses and investors on ‘The Internet of Threats’.

The event, run by SETsquared at its hub in Basing View, will feature talks from experts who will highlight how cyber security can actually create major new opportunities for start-ups.

Adrian Braine, entrepreneur in residence at SETsquared’s hub in Basingstoke, said: “The global Internet of Things market is set to grow massively over the coming years, running to billions of devices and trillions of dollars but until now, security has largely been ignored.

“The recent realisation that security, or lack of it, could make or break the Internet of Things is creating major new opportunities for cyber security start-ups to exploit. The inherent vulnerability and complexity of IoT systems opens the way for a new wave of start-ups to develop pioneering security solutions that provide end to end protection from the cloud to the device.”

The talks will cover topics including ‘IoT security: strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and not just threats’, ‘IoT security middleware: evaluating the threats and protecting against them’ and ‘Security in the cloud: your data in their hands’, delivered by SETsquared experts from companies including MathEmbedded, NquiringMinds and Basingstoke-based RazorSecure.

The event, which is free to attend, runs from 5.30 to 8pm and includes a panel session and networking. To register visit localhost/setsquared-live/iot

The programme, held at Basing View, will allow participants the chance to take part in a world-leading course to help their businesses grow.
