SDP 10: Mike Faulks on cybersecurity, IoT and being part of a GCHQ accelerator

In episode10 of the Sheffield Digital podcast, we’re joined by Mike Faulks, co-founder and director of Ioetec, a Sheffield company that provide a cloud service solution to connect Internet of Things (IoT) devices with end-to-end authenticated, encrypted security.

It was great to talk to Mike about all things cybersecurity and IoT. Ioetec are in the middle of a GCHQ accelerator programme too, which they were selected to be a part of last year. Mike was able to share the company’s experience and the impact it’s had on the business.

The second half of the show, as per usual, is spent going over some of the latest goings on in Sheffield’s Digital sector. That includes a great opportunity to get your company on a new directory, some news from Kollider, city centre wifi and an update from dotSHF.

Oh, and we also go through some upcoming events related to tech and digital. Go grab your headphones! And don’t forget to subscribe in your app of choosing.
