    Eventbrite - June Monthly Meeting: Preparing Managers for Competency-Based Interviews presented by Robin Kessler

    Companies like Equifax, Yahoo, Ebay and Linkedin  have had over 3 BILLION  records compromised over the last 18 months leaving  millions at risk of all forms of ID Theft including Social Security,  Financial,  Driver License, Medical,  Criminal, Insurance, Tax Id and Children's Identity theft just to name a few!

    According  to the Federal Trade Commission- "If you have a credit report, there's a good chance that you're one of the 143 million American  consumers  whose sensitive  personal information was exposed"-  The Equifax Data Breach: What to Do.

    Identity theft has exploded into a serious national problem. Not only do businesses suffer direct losses due to this crime, but inadequate security and poor business practices may open a company up to liability suits, fines, and loss of clientele. A company obviously must take adequate steps to protect the confidential information of its customers.

    While no one can totally prevent identity theft due to the human element of this crime, there are steps that a company can take to minimize risk factors for all of us. Safe information handling practices are the key to keeping identifying information out of the hands of thieves.

    Congress and Texas have passed legislation aimed at protecting confidential information in the workplace. Federal laws regarding protection of customers'  and employees'  sensitive information include the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACT Act) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Join us to determine the level of risk to which your company may be vulnerable and learn how to develop a Culture of Security in the Digital age to protect your Staff and Customers.
