It's the NE:Tech SECURITY MONTH! With so much of our data being stored in the cloud, the need for data security is more important now than ever. That's why this month Faye Ellis and Jim Hooker will be joining us to share their experiences with data security and help us to prepare ourselves for the journey ahead. NE:Tech will be hosted online via the attached Zoom link. Although we would like to return to face-to-face meetups, the health and safety of our members is a top priority. We are paying close attention to the government guidelines and will return to physical meetups when it is safe and sensible to do so.

About Faye

I've been an instructor at ACloudGuru for 2 years. I've worked in IT for around 20 years, mainly in financial services, banks and stock exchanges in various roles including IT Support, DevOps and Architecture. So I understand the difficulties and frustrations of trying to keep up with the latest technologies! I live in London with a very tall man and a really short dog. I love gardening, running and experimenting in the kitchen!
