Forum VI - June 2019: Houston was the venue for the June 22, 2019 Summer Leadership Forum. Thirty attendees heard a riveting presentation from the Houston Police Department’s Senior Community Liaison, Stephen Daniel, on what to do when the unthinkable happens. He explained how to react during an active shooter crisis and the importance of having a “survival mindset” in the event of a mass shooting. A second guest speaker, Mark Elliott, author of Sitting Duck – Why YOUR Business is a Cybercriminal’s Ideal Target, also spoke on how to keep our data safe. Mr. Elliott discussed the common cyber-criminal attacks and provided practical tips applicable to all attendees. Additional details can be found in the News tab in the July 2019 issue of FWIT News.
