Training and Consulting
Mark and his team offer training and consulting services on the following topics:
The workplace is the #1 source of information for identity thieves. The average business is full of security holes because the vast majority of us are honest people. We don’t walk into our offices or cubicles with an eye on what can be stolen or misused. We must change our thinking so that we are aware of the risk.
88% of all data breaches are caused by employee negligence.
Throughout his presentation, Mark endeavors to engage his audience so that when they walk away their thinking has changed. Once the way a person thinks has changed, their behavior quickly follows. Mark will:
- Talk about the “why” behind company procedures and protocols.
- Share real-life examples that illustrate the importance of data security.
- Encourage conversation that will result in changed thinking and changed behavior.
- Stolen data = ID Theft = $$$.
Texas is currently ranked by the Federal Trade Commission as 5th in the nation for identity theft complaints. Over half of all identity theft that happens in the U.S. takes place on the job and is due to human error, not intent.
When your identity is stolen, thieves can then open bank accounts, charge medical bills to your name, apply for jobs and even leave you with legal issues. Knowledge is power and you must know how to protect yourself from this happening to you, your family or your staff.
Delivering exceptional communication is not dependent on fitting into the mold of the idealistic, charismatic leader. The key to great communication is realizing that it is not about what you think you are communicating, it’s learning how people are receiving your communication.
