Nick Nicholaou will be speaking…..
Avoiding Data Theft & Identity Fraud
Every year more people have money stolen or— much worse— have their identity stolen. The most vulnerable, surprisingly, are those whose age is 20 – 59! In 2016 the FBI received nearly 300,000 complaints of cybercrime! The total loss in the U.S. was more than 1.3 billion dollars! In this session you’ll learn:
- What some of the most common fraud tactics are,
- What the latest trends indicate, and
How to protect yourself, your family, your church, and your congregation.
IT Game Plans for Successful Ministry
Church IT teams and those responsible to lead them receive input from many about how to accomplish their IT tasks.
- Some are credible, and can work!
- Some are not, and will not work well.
We’ll discuss some areas that will help. Objectively, with nothing to sell.
- Leading IT Well
- Decision Making
- Policy Setting
- Insourcing & Outsourcing
- Retaining IT Staff
- Windows vs macOS
- The Security Sweet Spot
- Open Q&A
Panel: Managing & Empowering Staff to Work Remotely facilitated by Nick Nicholaou
Church teams are an increasingly mobile workforce. Questions abound!
- How do you manage a workforce that often doesn’t work onsite?
- What technologies work best?
- What HR and legal issues are there?
- What are the benefits to the church?
The Cloud Q&A
Everyone’s talking about The Cloud. They say your church is in The Cloud, but what does that mean, exactly?
We’ll answer your questions about:
- What The Cloud is
- How it works
- What are it’s pros and cons
- What it really costs
Bring your questions– any questions; we’ll have answers!
ChMS Issues & VoIP Considerations
A constant topic of conversation among church leadership and staff is about Church Management Software (ChMS).
- How do you know if you need to make a change?
- What strategies and solutions should you consider?
- What solution is best?
And what about phone system options? There is a lot of salesmanship going on in that field. We’ll introduce VoIP— it’s benefits and enough details to help recognize good and not-so-good options.
We’ll end our time with open Q&A about any topic!
We bring our entire tech team to this conference for spiritual and relational refreshment and to participate as church and ministry IT peers.
