April Business Breakfast Bytes from the Fox Cities Chamber Focuses on “Identity Theft”

Published Tuesday, March 28, 2017

The Fox Cities Chamber’s monthly educational program, Business Breakfast Bytes, will focus on identity theft at the April morning session.

The upcoming session, “Don't Let Identity Theft Hurt Your Employees or Harm Your Business” will feature two experts that will provide information regarding the ramifications of identity theft to employees as well as businesses. Facilitating this event is Lisa Taylor, Founder of Strategic Partnerships LLC and Jeff Jordan, Sr. Security Specialist, Level 3 Communications.

Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America. It affects business owners in two ways; their employees can be victims, which can result in lost productivity, and the business itself can be a target, which can result in loss of intellectual property, perception of carelessness and even liability.

“Over 30 million people have been identity theft victims in the past 5 years. Employers across the nation are effected by the hidden costs and real obstacles when it happens to one of their employees. Also, nearly 70 percent of businesses say they’ve experienced one or more hacking events in the last year, but 55 percent aren’t confident they’ve dedicated enough dollars or personnel to fight the evolving problem,” Beth Haase said.

Join us on April 18th to learn more about how identity theft related issues in the workplace impact your revenue and what you need to do as a business owner to avoid breach.
