IT Peer Group Meeting

Wednesday, March 18, 2020 from 10-12pm


Because data is used and created everywhere in your business, your IT can affect (and improve!) everything from your operational processes to the ability to grow your sales.

We’re excited to work with TLD Computers, a Division of London Drugs Ltd, to create a baseline for what your food & beverage company will need to ensure the health and safety of your IT environment. 

Join us for our next IT Peer Group meeting, where we will explore basic IT systems for:

  • Protecting your intellectual property  
  • Protecting your sales and finances

More specifically:

  • Security at a personal & business level
  • Vulnerabilities, Risks & Threats – What’s what?
  • What can I do to ensure that my business is safe?
  • A history lesson on Cloud
  • Can my fridge be hacked?
  • Dark Web – What is it and How Dark is it?

Who should come?

  • Professionals new to IT
  • Professionals with IT being one of many hats
  • Owners and Managers of SMEs
  • Professionals who want to ensure that they’re considering the right IT systems for their business
  • Professionals who want to learn about working with a 3rd party to manage their IT systems


Following this presentation will be the IT Round Table Discussion for peers to ask questions and discuss best practices.
