Business Technology Forum Welcomes Ethical Hacker

Headlining this year’s Business Technology Forum is Europe’s number 1 ethical hacker Jamie Woodruff. Jamie ethically hacks companies to discover their security weaknesses and is one of the world’s leading authorities on hacking and cyber security. 

As an ‘ethical hacker’, trained in finding security weaknesses, Woodruff is employed by companies to offer them insight into how strong their security is in. At the Business Technology Forum 2018 Jamie will talk about the importance of system and network security for business.

This is your chance to listen as he discloses his world-wide exploits and vulnerabilities within leading security applications such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Apple and Google. Jamie finds existing exploits by infiltrating the companies in question. All carried out under fully authorised, ethical penetration testing to help companies improve their network security measures.

In his early 20s, Jamie Woodruff entered the public eye when he successfully hacked Facebook as part of a student competition at Bangor University where he was studying computer information systems.

He has since uncovered security holes in numerous high-profile operations, including Kim Kardashian’s website, which he hacked to reveal that it was putting her fans’ data at serious risk.

 Woodruff is a director of Metrics Cloud, specialising in training, penetration testing and recruitment. He is also the cyber safety advisor for the Cyber Smile Foundation which specialises in online cyber bullying. 

Jamie also talks passionately about Cryptocurrency – explaining how it works, what to expect in the future and what it means for the future of currency and trading.
