Business fraud topic at next HBSBA meeting

The  Comox Valley Home-Based & Small Business Association invites all entrepreneurs to its monthly networking meeting March 7 at the Best Western.

There is no charge to attend the meeting, which begins with networking at 6 p.m.

In addition to the networking portion of the meeting, this month’s meeting will feature a presentation about Fraud Against Businesses. An officer from the RCMP will discuss business fraud while Bob Wells, owner of My Tech Guys, will focus on Internet fraud. Both will provide tips to business owners to minimize the risk of being victimized.

Passwords, software updates, PCI compliance, security cameras, access to information (email, Dropbox, backups) and social engineering are among the topics to be discussed.

There will also be a brief spotlight presentation by HBSBA member Dennis Richardson. Richardson is the area representative for Canada Purple Shield, the leading provider of financial solutions for families pre-planning and pre-paying for funeral arrangements in Canada. While the company is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Richardson is celebrating his 35th anniversary in the financial industry.

The Comox Valley Home-Based & Small Business Association meets on the first Thursday of each month, September through June. Membership is open to all small businesses. Annual dues are $75.     www.CVEntrepreneurs.com
