GGD#57 $@>U#%? – Security is all around you by Gudrun Fedorowich

Our February Girl Geek Dinner is hosted by LLoyds Banking Group

Thursday February 16th 

Although Information and Cyber Security are headline news the stories we see and hear reveal little about this field which can have so much influence on our lives. This talk looks to redress the balance by giving an overview of the key building blocks that this discipline is based on and the career opportunities these present.

  • Triangles and chains – the basics of information security

  • Behind the headlines – using news stories to show how security works and what happens when it fails

  • Internet of Things – securing the things that are part of your every day life

  • Careers in Information and Cyber Security

Gudrun Fedorowich

Gudrun has 20 years experience in Information Technology 10 of which have been spent in the field of Information and Cyber Security culminating in her current role at Lloyds Banking Group. She holds a Masters degree in Information Security from the University of the West of England. IT is her second career as Gudrun holds an undergraduate degree in the History of Art and her early working life spanned roles in sales, marketing and management development.

After the presentation and any questions we will open the floor up for a discussion,  if anyone feels like they would like to bring along any ppt’s or links that they want to share for discussion then please bring it along on a USB or mail the team with info and we can share this during the discussion period. Don’t forget – you don’t have to work in the industry or be a geek, this is a group for anyone with an interest in the subject!  Do come along for pre-presentation mingling as we will be there from 6.30pm.

The food and hosting is kindly sponsored by LLoyds Banking Group who are based in the LLoyds ampitheatre Building on Bristol Harbourside – details will be posted on the exact building entrance on the meetup page once we receive it

Womens Tech Hub Midwinter Social

As you are all aware we are taking a break this xmas but have a great february event in the planning and also wish to invite you all to our wthub xmas do – have a great xmas and look forward to seeing you all in the new year!

You are cordially invited to the  in conjunction with Desklodge

On the 19th January from 6-9pm @ Desklodge, 1 Temple Way, Bristol BS20BY 

WTHub ~ Bristol  want to say thank-you to all the people who have supported us in our start-up year, especially the Desklodge team, who have hosted numerous F3Fridays ~ see http://www.wthub.org/category/news/  to get an idea of the outcomes of our weekly sessions.

Our  Midwinter Social is free, and a great chance to meet and mingle with a whole bunch of talented and diverse people.

WTHub is a social enterprise that exists to support individual women with their careers in tech, and connect them with local womens tech groups and industry. We also encourage women to attend and speak at mixed events and like to share news about all the great things going on out there in Bristol and the South-West. We are actively working with local companies to create a more diverse workplace culture.

If we haven’t persuaded you already with the idea of free wine and beer and some free crisps, here are a couple of reasons to come to our Midwinter Social:

For meetup organisers it’s a chance to network with local women in tech groups and find out what else is happening in the region.

For tech businesses, do feel free to bring information about opportunities with your company, or just come and talk to some great and interesting women about their experiences of working in tech.

If you’d like to bring info about a meetup group or recruitment or relevant events then please let us know in advance. We will set up a revolving presentations slideshow if you and send us a one page ppt slide.

So sign up here [https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/midwinter-social-tickets-29985162428] and please pass this invite any women you know who currently work in tech, are interested in the idea or a woman interested in meeting more people working locally – the more the merrier!

re:BOOT and returnships

screenshot-2016-12-09-at-20-10-14The great news is that not only have we @ wthub.org had our first returner successfully started @ Habu – more of which we will post later. But we have also been talking to a few companies interested in the re:BOOT scheme.
 
Oracle have just released this publicly and we have some possible candidates already in mind. If you want to understand more then feel free to chat to us on info@wthub.org or go directly to Michael .. he’s very friendly!
 
“I’m interested in speaking to people who are seeking a return to Software Engineering having had an absence from the industry. Maybe you, or someone you know, has left the industry to have a family or simply take a break and you’re interested in returning but unsure how to fit it around your commitments?
 
Oracle Bristol is offering Returnships. These are paid positions which can be full or part-time, 10 weeks to 10 months, we’re flexible.
