Ben Greiner was a much-loved presenter at X World 2017, and we couldn’t wait to ask him back to be our Keynote speaker this year. As well as presenting the keynote session, Ben will be presenting a workshop on how to talk cybersecurity with customers.
Ben is the Founder and President of Forget Computers where he leads a brilliant team using intelligent tools, clear communication, and a positive attitude to help people accomplish more — more securely — with Apple technology.
Fundamentals of Wi-Fi Workshop

Attendees will learn the fundamental principles of Wi-Fi, how Wi-Fi differs from the wired networking, and how Wi-Fi client devices and networks behave (or don’t) in the real world.
