So you’re all hooked up with Twitter and LinkedIn, you have a Facebook presence and are fascinated and eager to use these tools. These panelists say not so fast! You need to be aware of all the crooks, scam artists and hackers who will enthusiastically steal your identity and rob you blind unless you take adequate precautions.
This workshop is very hands-on and practical: exploring the mechanics of getting social networking set up, working with IT people to make social networking feasible, and protecting yourself from hackers and identity thieves.
Our panelists are:
Gayle Lynn Falkenthal, APR, is president of Falcon Valley Group, a San Diego-based public relations firm, and specializes in crisis communications, media relations, media training and strategic planning. She is a seasoned user of and believer in social media.
Ted Thompson, an experienced information technology manager, is Response Technology Manager for the American Red Cross of San Diego and Imperial Counties and has developed a specialty in implementing and managing disaster response technological and communications systems.
Daniel Libby, CFC, CHS-III, is director at Digital Forensics, Inc., which provides digital forensic investigative services to legal, government and corporate clients. A former cryptologist with the National Security Agency, he has extensive experience in all facets of digital evidence acquisition, validation, analysis and presentation.
There will be handouts with lots of resources gathered from the previous workshops, checklists, contacts for government agencies and more. Please come with your questions and concerns – we are here to help you in this time of transition.
The event will begin with a reception and networking with light hors d’oeuvres and wine from 6 to 6:30 and the panel discussion, with plenty of time for Q&A, from 6:30-8 p.m.
