Synopsis:

The Chartered Institute for IT, Jersey is pleased to invite you to this event, 'Wi-Fi security in Jersey - why it matters and how to secure it'.

Wi-Fi security should be a concern to anyone operating a Wi-Fi access point whether for home or corporate use. The risks to you (as an individual) and companies of not having correct Wi-Fi security are many and varied.

This lecture will address this from several viewpoints. The lecture will utilise real Wi-Fi survey data from Jersey to 'paint a picture' of the Wi-Fi security landscape in Jersey to draw conclusions and offer solutions.

The seminar is suitable for both a technical and non-technical audience.
