vBBC Friday, 18 March 2022, Blog-writing & Cybersecurity

Welcome to this our final virtual online BBC for all time … this sunny BBC Friday, 18 March 2022.

Wynne Jacobson will share about the work she does for ClikCloud (clikcloud.com/blog), a digital marketing firm based in California and focused on cybersecurity. She will share her journey from proofreading to blog-writing, and consider a number of related topics, such as website as a service and cloud applications. 

Business Continuity Planning and Cybersecurity have been perennial topics at the BBC. Join us for this delightful and relevant discussion.

March 25th, there will be no BBC. April 1st will be our first in-person BBC Friday meeting at OfficeXpats! We plan to have the virtual Zoom room up on the big monitor for those few who are not able to make an in-person appearance. 

Notes from this week’s meeting: vBBC_18March2022Two years ago BBC went virtual. March 12th WA State loosens Covid-19 restrictions. Track recommended Covid updates for your community: cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/science/community-levels; scroll down to “County Check” to see how your local community is doing!
