The technical meetings are a monthly event, that aims to provide the Birmingham Perl community with an educational night of talks. If you wish to attend, please feel free to come along and listen in.
Talks Wanted: If you would like to do a talk, whether a 5 minute lightning talk, a 15 minutes talk or longer, please let us know and we'll add you to the schedule. If we are unable to add you to the schedule for the next meeting, we will give you priority at a future meeting.
Guest Speakers: Are you visiting Birmingham at some point in the future, and would be willing to give a talk? Or are you based outside of the West Midlands, but would be willing to make a trek over to see us and present a talk? If so, then I'd love to hear from you. Drop me an email with details of when you are in Birmingham and the talk you would like to present. I'll then arrange a schedule and confirm.

|Shane Coughlan * - Security For Real People|
Security is a popular buzzword. People talk about Internet security, computer security, information security. But what is security? More importantly, why is security so hard to actually obtain?
Some companies would try to describe security in terms of products and solutions. In doing so they frequently misrepresent security as something you can buy, something tangible. Security is not tangible. It's a process. It's something that involves every aspect of how you use ICT tools. Security is a chain encompassing everything used in the communication process, and the key link in the chain is you.
I'm going to talk about how we can apply security processes to the real world for real people. Human interfacing is the key term. It will help us to get more from existing tools like OpenPGP and to prepare ourselves for the coming revolution of quantum encryption. This is about building security processes around people rather than machines.
