There will be light refreshments from 5.30 in the foyer of the Physical Sciences building. There are steps from the foyer to the room, but there is also wheelchair lift access available

Speaker: Dr Nick Pringle 

Did you recently see that the FBI unusually issued a global warning about an orchestrated attack on the ATM network? With nearly 60,000 ATMs in the UK alone, what are the challenges of balancing the desire for availability and convenience and the overall need for physical and cyber security?

We are pleased to welcome Dr Nick Pringle to consider issues as diverse as: what defines a secure supply chain? How does ISO27001 apply? Does a commercial operating system like Windows 10 have role in a secure environment like an ATM ?

What sorts of job roles are required to meet the service and security challenges?  What’s the future for cash in a “cashless society”?

Dr Pringle received his PhD in digital forensics from the University of South Wales and works in the area of computer security. 

The planned poster is also attached for information. We could do something about a banner image based on the top half of the poster if you would find that useful.
