As smart devices become part of our everyday lives, what are we risking by making our homes and lives more efficient and connected? These are questions asked in our temporary exhibition ‘Never Alone’ based on an exhibition created by the National Science and Media Museum. (Extended exhibition will run until 30 August 2021).
Taking a deeper dive into some of the themes of this exhibition, this special Bletchley Park Presents: Never Alone is a virtual lecture exploring the pros and cons of the Internet of Things (IoT). Hosted by our very own Exhibitions Manager, Erica Munro, it will bring together two well-known and widely respected speakers from the IoT industry who will give insiders’ perspectives on smart devices and their connectivity.
- Jeff Day is a security consultant at British Telecom (BT). Formerly the security lead for BT’s Internet of Things (IoT) programme, he now leads a team assuring the security of over 200 voice platforms deployed across the globe.
- Ken Munro is a security entrepreneur who has worked in Information Security for over 15 years. With a talent for hacking, Ken set up Pen Test Partners which boasts some of the best ethical hackers in the business.

As an independent museum, we rely on visitor income and the generosity of supporters. The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted our resilience for the future. All our events involve a lot of time and work behind the scenes to plan and prepare. If you are able to give, we welcome donations of £5 for this event. Your donation will help us safeguard this remarkable site and continue the work of Bletchley Park Trust to reflect the outstanding achievements of the Codebreakers. Thank you.
