On Wednesday September 26, 2018, BIT organises a hosting event with the theme ‘Heart for Hosters’. Abuse protection, measures against DDoS-attacks, ISO 27001 certifications, etcetera. As a hosting party, you have to have a lot of things in order to meet the demands of clients and the laws and regulations. We like to think with you and provide you with solutions to relieve you of such worries so you can put your full focus on your core business without worrying.

There are several speakers during this event who focus on this message. Wido Potters (manager Support & Sales and member of the board of ISPConnect and AbuseIO), for example, will be giving a presentation on the new code of conduct on combating abuse within the hosing industry and how hosters with AbuseIO can handle abuse easily, quickly and automatically. Teun Vink (Security Officer at BIT) will talk about how you recognize DDoS attacks, what you can do against it and the measurements BIT has taken in the battle against DDoS attacks to provide our clients with an available network.

This event presents IT specialists in the hosting industry where we can offer support and what the added value of our service is by talks about current events and inspiring speakers.
