My friends tease me about my role in promoting First Base Technologies through public speaking, articles and interviews ... hence calling me 'Famous Pete Wood Security'

A day off
Having decided to have a day off, I find myself browsing the National Museum of Computing web site. I first met Tony Sale about ten years ago and his enthusiasm was infectious. If you haven't visited Bletchley Park then I strongly recommend it - not only to learn about the history of computing but also the incredible work done by the code breakers during World War II. If you've got a few quid (or dollars or Euros) to spare, then consider a donation to either of these excellent organisations.
My friends take great pleasure in teasing me about my role in promoting our firm through public speaking, TV and radio interviews and so on ... hence calling me 'Famous Pete Wood Security'.
I speak at international IT security conferences and specialist groups, provide commentary on security issues for television and radio, and appeared in the BBC1 documentaries " ID Fraud: They Stole My Life" and "ID Fraud: Outnumbered" with my partner Didi Barnes.
As Chief Executive Officer at First Base Technologies, I specialise in penetration testing corporate networks and performing social engineering exercises. I also chair our IT security user group at white-hats.co.uk
