In his lecture, Meakin will examine current Wi-Fi threats and their significance in relation to the wider IT security landscape. Examples of current Wi-Fi attacks will be presented along with their associated threats. Meakin will explain how to achieve the numerous benefits of Wi-Fi through good policy design, while at the same time mitigating risks to key assets. He will outline how detailed knowledge is required to underpin the formation of any effective Wi-Fi security policy and how the CWNP certification program delivers this in a professional and systematic manner.

Meakin has been a director of MarQuest Limited, a company specializing in Wi-Fi systems and infrastructure support, for more than 20 years. He holds a doctorate degree in electronic engineering from the University of Hull and is currently completing a master’s degree in software and systems security at the University of Oxford.

I greatly look forward to having lively conversations with my fellow speakers and attendees.”
