Passwords Suck! - A Lighter Side of Practical Cyber Security

Presented by Blair Baker and Ted Harrington

You'll be reminded of who and what the different age groups are with a focus on The Millennials and how they related to the technology world, how they behave and how to use social media professionally.  Do you have a grumpy “old” boss who does not seem get you, your needs, your career aspirations?  Or do you have a few young, “lazy” dreamers who appear more interested in “likes” and social media than work?

Today, there are five (5) different generations in the US workplace today.  Each has a very different understanding and perspective of what it means to work.  As Boomers retire, the Millennials are the largest group in the workforce today and will only be getting larger.  Come learn a little about each; what they want, how they think, and how you can better understand them and work harmoniously together.  The presentation will also include a “how to and why to” use social media for business purposes.

Blair always brings more to the topic, this session will be one part fun, one part educational and one part professional development.
