Cyber security, electronic media policy workshop


The Saipan Chamber of Commerce will hold a three-hour workshop focusing on cyber threats and electronic media policies.

Ron Smith of Angil Design will present a brief history cybercrime, discuss current and future threats, and tell you how you can avoid becoming a victim.

Attorney Tim Bellas will discuss some of the legal issues related to use of electronic media in the workplace and the importance of having a written policy. The seminar will be held from 9am to noon on Tuesday, Feb. 17, in the Chamber conference room (Suite 315 Marianas Business Plaza).

Computers, social media, and cell phones are commonplace in every business, so it is important that business owners clearly understand the threats that exploit these devices and what steps to take to protect their businesses from these threats. In addition, it is important to provide policies and guidance to employees on the appropriate use of these tools within the workplace setting. The presenters will provide business owners with the knowledge and procedural tools they need in order to achieve these goals.

The workshop should benefit business owners and managers with responsibility for the security and appropriate use of Internet-enabled devices, computers, networks and control systems. 

Registration for the seminar is now being accepted at the Saipan Chamber of Commerce office at the Marianas Business Plaza Suite 315, third floor. Call 234-7150 or e-mail to reserve your attendance. Registration fee for Chamber members is $20; $30 for non-Chamber members. Seating is limited to the first 40 paid attendees. (SCC)
