In  2017 you can’t work without computers, and going online is a must. So what do you do if/when your organization’s secure information is compromised? What are some practical things you and your team can do to minimize your vulnerability? 

Several years ago Andy Harrover (our presenter) was attending a conference for IT professionals when he was invited to a special session led by the FBI. They asked a small group of civilian business owners to be their boots on the ground, training and equipping the average worker and business owner in how to avoid common pitfalls and understanding their own role in keeping their companies safe. Today Andy is passionate about sharing this information with fellow business owners. 

Join him for a session featuring practical things anyone and EVERYONE can do to mitigate the risk of being hacked. You will also learn how to better understand and work with your IT provider, and how to train friends and coworkers to be on their guard while still enjoying the many benefits of the digital age. Refreshments will be provided.

During the First Industrial Revolution water and steam power mechanized production. With the Second we generated mass production using electricity.

The 4th Industrial Revolution will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. Today we enjoy the technology that allows billions of people to connect via mobile devices. With unprecedented processing power, storage capacity, and access to knowledge, the possibilities continue to multiply. 

Join us for a glimpse of the very near future and emerging technological breakthroughs in fields such as artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, 3-D printing, nanotechnology, biotechnology, energy storage, and more! 

We will discuss challenges and opportunities, the impact on business, the impact on government and the impact on people.
