Cyber Security Awareness:
“We Have All Been Hacked”
Thursday February 9, 2017
5.00 pm – 8.00 pm
Venue: CIC Rotterdam
The Swedish Chamber of Commerce thanks Base Cyber Security for inviting the members of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce and YP to a very interesting and dynamic cyber security presentation by YP Member Maeson Ethard at their inspirational and innovative office at CIC in Rotterdam.
We live, work and play in cyberspace as we adopt connected technology everywhere. Without knowing, we rely on “good” hackers to protect our privacy, freedom and safety every day.
Maeson Ethard welcomed us to the world of cyber security and introduces us to the good and bad of cyber security. How it can influence global politics or protect human rights – and why companies pay 1,5 million dollars to hack your smart phone. The presentation gave an insight to how vulnerable we really are an increasingly digital world and what we can personally do about it.
The Swedish Chamber Mentorship Program 3: Values and dreams. How does it work in real life?
Guest Speaker: Karin Tenelius, CEO and Founder Tuff Leadership Trainingo
Strategic career planning vs purpose in life?
Without any judgement about what is the right path in working life, this seminar is about the benefits of balancing these two extremes. What is this abstract thing that we name purpose, vocation or calling? How do you find it? Don´t you risk your great career plan for some vague longing? Outcomes will be new ideas and angles on how you chose in life.
Welcome to download Strategic Questions under Program below.
Leadership Identity – Reaching my goals
The theme for this seminar is Leadership Identity – Reaching my goals. We are all leaders and we affect ourselves and our surroundings, both intentionally and unintentionally. The challenge is to develop and increase awareness about what it is that you want to affect, and from that create a vision and goals that colligate with your identity. Questions and discussion topics that will be raised are; How do I describe myself and how do I see myself? Is this how I want to identify myself? If not – what do I want and what can I do about it? What tools do I need in order to reach my vision, my goals and my identity, and what do I need to change?
