Adapting to the No-Office Normal

Information, privacy professional, and frequently offsite consultant Victoria McIntosh invites businesses to learn effective methods for allowing staff to work from home, in-office, or across the country while still protecting information assets. Deployment of remote security management differs from office programs, but the goal remains the same. Security, in-house or offsite, aims for timely access by the right users to accurate information. We want to allow entry to information resources for verified staff while shutting out external threats. For organizations, this means a plan for what staff needs to access, and how they can protect it from where ever they choose to work. About the Presenter Victoria McIntosh, Information and Privacy Professional, and Owner of Information in Bloom Management Services Victoria McIntosh is an information and privacy professional in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Holding a Masters in Library and Information Science, she puts the pieces together. Certified as an IAPP Information Privacy Technologist, Victoria brings privacy expertise to operations. She is keen on foundational privacy and security practices, enjoying opportunities to discuss and educate others with conversations, presentations, and material development. Presently, Victoria operates under her freelance consulting firm: Information in Bloom Management Services. REGISTER

Link Building Strategy Workshop

Your website needs the clout of other sites to win the attention of Google (just like in real life) Before you buy a product or a service, you look at reviews, right? You might even ask a friend about their experience to get an idea if you should buy or not. That’s how search engines feel about your website, too! Google wants to see that your website is *linked* with big websites that show your content is relevant and amazing. If you don’t have other sites confirming your content is great... Google won't prioritize it when your dream customers come searching for information. Fact: There’s only 10 lily pad spots on Google’s first page, and it’s reserved for those froggies with the right kind of clout. So... are you ready to leap towards page 1 with me? I’m Alison K, and my workshop will teach you the right way to build links (and lasting brand relationships) that will slingshot your content from ‘unknown’ to ‘household’. REGISTER
