New WWN member Crystal King is our speaker for Thursday, Oct. 19. King, the business development director for NW Technology of Ferndale, will discuss social engineering.

After all, it’s easier to gain access to a company’s sensitive information by using people than discovering ways to hack into your software. What is the strength of your security online and off?
