    October Theme: Big Data
    Data Matters: Respecting and Protecting Data in Business

    We are in an unprecedented data creation and consumption binge cycle and we are all participants – from individuals to large corporations. Big data is a big topic but it’s not just big businesses that need to consider how they’re managing data. It’s a big responsibility to use data appropriately and keep it secure, regardless of the size of your business. 

    Come hear some simple ways you can set and maintain business processes that respect the value and importance of the data you collect.
