At Barbara IoT, one of our missions is to make information about the Internet of Things and Cybersecurity more accessible. That’s why, on April 9th, we organized an  IoT Day meetup following the invitation of the IoT Council to carry out an event, hackathon or afterwork with people interested in the Internet of Things.

After this experience, and following our mission, we decided to continue building our community around these topics.

Why? Because we believe that anyone can become the weakest link in your organization and that it is necessary for everyone to have the tools to protect themselves against possible incidences of cybersecurity. Therefore, on June 4th we decided to provide, with  Luis Cuervo, our Security Manager, a basic course of “Cybersecurity 101”.

The meeting was an informal “afterwork” in our new offices in which very diverse profiles took part, from students who wanted to delve deeper into Cybersecurity, to more technical profiles. Each one contributed its bit and the environment was very relaxed and participative.

Together, we were able to share visions, learn about good practices and tools that allow us to protect ourselves against potential security threats and even discuss how the new Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) influences Cybersecurity, both individually and at the company level.

To the tips that Luis Cuervo gave us, new opinions and suggestions were added that from Barbara IoT we wrote down and we are already analyzing.

Finally, and in a more relaxed way, we had the opportunity to share more opinions and experiences with snacks and beers.

From Barbara we support this type of initiatives, both organising them internally or with external partners. And after having achieved a high average mark in our satisfaction survey, we will continue working to offer you more meetings of this kind, where according to the attendees, the closeness, naturalness, simplicity and duration have prevailed.
