Event Description

Security Strategies and Implementations: How to Keep the Bad Guys Out of Your Organization!

Ron Braithwaite, Vice President of Technology Services, SMB Technologies

During this training, we will review the current state of security strategies for small and medium organizations. This will include real life reports and actual implementations that have resulted in fantastic results for clients. We will also provide best practices for security and back-up that protect data from the bad guys and reduce the likelihood of getting ransomware, malware and viruses.

About the Presenter

Ron Braithwaite, Vice President of Technology Services, SMB Technologies

Ron Braithwaite has been in the computer industry for over 35 years. He programmed in Integer BASIC on the Apple II in 1979, became Technical Support Manager of the Byte Shop Northwest chain in 1980, and was editor and publisher of the first computer newspaper in the Pacific Northwest, Byte’s Bits. He was also co-sysop of the fourth Computer Bulletin Board System in the country (CBBS/NW). He started using Unix (the foundation for the Mac OS X operating system) in 1981 and got his first Mac one week after it first shipped in 1984. He has served on two ANSI standards committees and was one of the first Java programmers in the world. His most recent programming project was a nutrition education program for the iPhone and iPad, MyDietSteps. About 10 years ago, Ron’s career turned full circle when he started working with Ron Rothstein doing Field Service and Technical Support. He realized he prefers working with people to help solve their technical problems than working by himself writing code. As Vice President of Technology Services at SMB Technologies, Ron works with SMB clients and with other SMB engineers to provide the highest level of service.
