29th February 2000 - London - Recent events have highlighted the vulnerability of even some of the biggest names in the Internet world. First Tuesday (www.firsttuesday.com), Europe's definitive business to business start-up portal for companies in the Internet and new media industries, invites you to attend its next London Networking event looking at the dangers of the Net, and how to avoid them: "The start-up's guide to Net security".

DK Matai, founder of mi2g (www.mi2g.com), will provide a guide to net security designed both for start-up and later stage companies. mi2g is a London based firm specialising in bespoke security architecture, enterprise knowledge management and e-commerce system engineering in Europe and in the US.

Julie Meyer, co-founder of First Tuesday and VP of International Business Development and Marketing said: "In an age when 'e-smurfs' can take out sites as well developed as Yahoo, DK will provide a guide for the issues that companies really should be concerned with, and what they should do to keep those concerns from becoming all-too painful realities."

The evening will provide updates on all major eRisk incidents and eBusiness trends within the interactive world and suggest the way forward.

"First Tuesday is an excellent initiative for budding eBusiness entrepreneurs. We welcome the initiative to see on-line security as a top priority. Whether a company is pre-IPO management or a venture capital house, all need to be prepared for dealing with eBusiness interruptions especially after the attacks on Amazon, eBay, CNN and ZDNet earlier this month", said DK Matai, founder of mi2g.

Date: Tuesday 29th February 2000
Time: From 6 pm
Address: Starts at 7.45 pm
