Personal Data – Risks of unauthorized access and what you should do about it

Presented by Peter Aggus

The subject of unauthorized use of personal data harvested from social media accounts came to be headline news recently with the Facebook / Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Most people now understand that there is a problem but it is not clear to them why that is, what it all means, or what they should do about it.

This talk will de-mystify the jargon and will look at what is meant by Personal Data – both for us as individuals and also as businesses. Why is there a risk from it being known by people with bad intentions and what are they likely to do with it? What is Data Analytics and why should we care? Is ‘Privacy’ really all that important if ‘we have nothing to hide’?

In this ‘Age of Big Brother’, what should we be worried about ‘them’ knowing about ‘us’? You will be surprised at the risks you are exposed to. We will look at some scary real-world examples.

In the end – what should we do about what is out there and what we may put out there in the future. You would not publish your bank account details – so why are you so willing to publish so much about your personal life?


Regional Developer - Shirley Franklin CMA, CPB

The cost of the meeting is $5.00.  You are responsible for your meal and beverage.

Dining out with food allergies can be a challenge, but it can be done safely. The best way to stay safe is by being informed and communicating your needs.

Before you go: ‘Be Informed and Inform’. We recommend contacting the restaurant ahead of time and talking to the restaurant manager or Kitchen manager.

At the Restaurant: ‘Communicate’. Talk to the server upon arriving and also to the IPBC regional network chair and explain your food allergies.

Block out time on your calendar for this event right now. Why? Just imagine networking with some of the top bookkeepers in the country. Imagine the chance to be on the fast track to a more lucrative practice, to being a certified professional bookkeeper (CPB) and to receiving greater professional recognition inside and outside of this network.

Regional Meetings are a vital part of that formula for success.

They're a unique chance to combine learning – a guest speaker shares expertise that's sure to make your work a bit easier – with fun and powerful networking.

Attending this meeting qualifies for one Professional Development Credit

Each meeting includes a guest speaker with a Q&A session; a discussion among the attendees about a marketing topic, a challenge someone may be facing, or another topic important to you; and networking. Non-members are welcome to attend two meetings to evaluate IPBC. Afterwards, you must join to participate in Regional Meetings.

Our meetings are "Scent Free” and business casual attire is appreciated. This is a business meeting. Please, turn off your cell phone before entering the room, and sorry no children allowed.

We look forward to seeing you there!
