FileMaker and Security Webinar/User Group Meeting

Tim Cimbura's insight:

Matthew Goldman (area rep) and Rosemary Teitge (FileMaker Engineer) will be the stars of our December 9th meeting. Rosemary will be presenting: Security: The Threat Landscape and the FileMaker Platform 2014 has been the year of payment card data breaches. Data protection should be a priority for business of all sizes, but it is not. In 2012, the Wall Street Journal cited this alarming statistic, "Firms with 11 to 100 employees are attacked more than ten times as frequently as the next larger tier (100 to 1000 employees).” Figuring out what you should be worried about is the first step, and figuring out how to mitigate those risks is the next one. Rosemary will outline the biggest threats and how to employ the security tools in the FileMaker Platform to mitigate risk. Attend in person or virtually via zoom.us. For virtual users, you will receive an invitation to join 15 minutes prior to the start time.
