CIO's and CPO's across Orange County are encourged to attend this important educational workshop on the critical issue of identity theft in the workplace.
Recently, the U.S Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to ask chambers of commerce to help them raise awareness about the need for businesses to protect employees and consumers against identity theft.
From 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, speakers from the O.C District Attorney’s office, FTC, Homeland Security and other business experts will provide participants with information on laws and regulations about identity theft, tips on how to create company policies, stories about first-hand experiences with identity theft, and ideas about how best to handle a breach in security.
Additional Presentations will be made by Jose Solorio, State Assemblyman; Tony Rackauckas, OC District Attorney; Dick Castner, U.S. Chamber of Commerce; Joseph Macias, Department of Homeland Security; Ken Abbe, FTC; Ned Curic, Microsoft, and Sandy Ingram, SmallbizPrivacy. Some workshop topics include: “Identity Theft: The Hidden Truth,” “Reality Bites: Data Breach recovery and lessons learned,” and “How to Protect Your Most Valuable Assets.”
Attendees will receive a getting started resource book, which will contain speakers and “Privacy Partner” tools and materials to help them take immediate action toward being in compliance with privacy and security laws.
The Chamber is still seeking more privacy protection-related resource partners, as well as event sponsors.
