LSE IT Services public lecture series

LSE IT Services is pleased to present a series of evenings (19, 20 and 21 October) to help promote awareness of information security issues that are relevant to every person that uses the Internet.

With the increasing use of computers and information technology in our everyday lives, the number of threats that people face on the Internet everyday has also increased. This series is set to show what some of those threats are, how you can protect yourselves and what other people are doing to protect us.

David Blunkett first contested his Sheffield seat in 1974 and went on to become secretary of state for Education and Employment, home secretary and secretary of state for Work and Pensions, under Tony Blair. He has an interest in a huge variety of areas and is actively engaged in a number of activities around information security, specifically in raising awareness of the risks people face every day.

Charlie McMurdie has 28 years service in law enforcement. She has worked throughout London as a detective including various roles within the MPS Murder, Armed Robbery, and Specialist Crime Commands.

I'm hoping someone will ask her about police corruption
