After this session, your view of your personal and company’s security will never be the same — and that’s a good thing. Right now, cybercriminals are trying to find ways to steal your data and hard-earned money. If you are not prepared, unforeseen events may threaten your ability to continue operations. Whether it is phishing, ransomware, spoofing of emails, credit card skimmers, hurricanes, or power outages, you can take steps to insulate yourself from the dangers of the digital world.  Former police officer, FBI agent, and diplomat Ron Comers will talk about some of the sophisticated ways that criminals are targeting you and ways to ensure continuity of operations for what matters to you. In addition, Comers will offer you tactical strategies to make you less of a target while on travel. Take plenty of notes! This seminar is worth its weight in gold.

This fun and interactive seminar will show you how to make an impact on others though nonverbal communication. Studies show that 93% of communication effectiveness is based upon nonverbal cues. So what is your body telling others?
