Our Program For March 8, 2017
WHERE IS CYBERCRIME REALLY COMING FROM?
Cybercrime netted a whopping $450 billion in profits last year, with 2 billion records lost or stolen worldwide. In a November 2016 Ted Talk, security expert Caleb Barlow calls out the insufficiency of our current strategies to protect our data. His solution? We need to respond to cybercrime with the same collective effort as we apply to a health care crisis, sharing timely information on who is infected and how the disease is spreading. If we’re not sharing, he says, then we’re part of the problem.
Following the video, our own IT expert Steve Marburger of Pipeline IT will follow up with more alarming information and what we can do to protect our own personal and business data.
There is no doubt that this topic is among the most relevant in the news today!

After the usual Rotary technical difficulties, Film makers Nick Tipon, Don Silverek and Don Cambou presented a documentary film they produced about Santa Rosa. Gaye LeBaron, who has written two books documenting the history of Santa Rosa is interviewed and many photos and old film footage from Santa Rosa’s early years were shown.
