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.

Essentials of IT Security
It’s easy for a church to have a data breach and end up in the news! What should leadership know to prepare?

We’ll talk through common vulnerabilities and how to strategically minimize them. We’ll cover: Firewalls, Macs, WiFi, Mobile Devices, Passwords & Passphrases, Training Your Team, Email Vulnerabilities, and Malware (like Ransomware)

What’s Hot & What’s Not with Jonathan E Smith
Technology is changing at an ever-increasing speed!

  • Some of it is good!
  • Some of it is very good!
  • Some of it is not very good, or even horrible.

We will share our perspectives on some hot and not hot technology, and then open it up for Q&A.
