Ask a Millennial
How do you attract and retain young employees? In what ways do you make them feel valued so you can get the most out of them and their talents? The Midway Chamber's Higher Ed Committee wants to help bridge the gap between young adults and employers. At the upcoming event, Ask A Millennial, students and young alums will be asked what qualities they seek out (and which ones make them run away) from employers. Attendees will gain a better understanding of how to attract and retain young employees, while finding their talents.

Cybersecurity: We've Been Hacked! What Do We Do?
In our previous sessions on cybersecurity, we've covered cybersecurity threat awareness and steps you can take to protect your company.  But no data security program is airtight.  In this fourth and final installment of our series, we'll cover how to respond when you've experienced an attack.  What resources will you need?  What obligations do you have to notify others of the attack?  How do you work with law enforcement?  How do you limit and remediate damage?  How do you get back to normal operations?  

Emily Duke, of CyberSmartâ„¢ Law, LLC and Mary Franz, of Enterprise Knowledge Partners, make an encore performance to discuss these issues and answer your questions.
