IoD Autumn Lunch with Philip Virgo

Sefton Hotel
Friday, 02 October 2015
11:45 am – 2:00 pm

Please note that this is a third party organised event which may be of interest to our members.

Philip, who declined an invitation to join the Information Security Hall of Fame because it would only draw attention to him as a target, will use incidents from past and present to illustrate some key strategies for turning individual risk into collective competitive advantage.

The lunch is being supported by Barclays Wealth International and we will be organising a raffle to raise funds for The Children’s Centre.

The event will start with pre-lunch drinks in The Sefton Hotel Atrium at 11.45am followed by a two course meal and coffee which will be served promptly at 12.15pm. We intend completing formalities by no later than 2pm.

Philip Virgo: from systems engineer and futurologist to political engineer and whistle-blower.

He has been an advisor to various select committees and enquiries over the past twenty years and his blog “When IT meets Politics” (2008 onwards) is regularly used to whitewash material that whistle-blowers and others wish to see in the public domain as well as to analyse developments. It is widely read by journalists, politicians and officials who, in return, help with material they cannot be seen to have contributed.

Please note that this is a third party event and has not been arranged by the IOM Institute, any enquiries should be made direct to the IoD IOM branch.
