 PWF Meeting — Feb. 5 —  Protect Your Office from Hackers, Vendors, and (Rogue) Employees – Speaker – Bill Dotson

Be sure to register for the Wednesday, February 5, meeting, 11:30 a.m., at Copper Roux with Bill Dotson. He will be speaking about Cyber Security, something we all need to learn about!

IT security, hacking, data breaches, phishing…We hear about these on a daily basis and often want to throw our hands up or go back to pen and paper. Bill Dotson will walk us through a realistic way to approach security for your office and home through stories from companies he’s helped across the US. He’s often remembered as “that guy who scared us” from organizations who hire him to speak to multiple times.

Bill is a partner at Rocker, a technology consulting company. Rocker’s projects have included helping Big Ass Fans build their cloud infrastructure managing 75,000 smart fans around the globe, advising ten of central KY’s largest employers about cyber insurance and risk management, and interpreting what IT people say to non-IT people every day. Rocker is Bill’s third company and, although today may seem a bit scary, he will help us understand how to mitigate the risk.

How PWF Partners with other Organizations in the Community

Dreambuilders: Each year the Dreambuilder committee identifies agencies who support women who work in Lexington that are a good fit. Once an agency is selected, then the committee will work with that agency to identify items for donation and delivery of those collected items. Special events for that agency may be featured in the PWF newsletter and on the website/social marketing. That same agency may be considered for support again in three years. This practice allows PWF to support a wide range of groups who are supporting women in Lexington.

– Members of other organizations are invited to Join PWF. As a member there are opportunities for sharing information about upcoming events in the newsletter as well as placing information on the Member Information Table just as members enter the room. Also as a member you or your designate can attend the monthly meeting and network with members so that they know what is coming up at your agency.

– A relatively new option is the PWF Spotlight program, where an organization sponsors a meeting and has the opportunity to speak to the group for 3 minutes before the keynote speaker. Also the Spotlight organization receives recognition leading up to the meeting in the newsletter and on the website / social marketing.
