Book: “Protecting Your Internet Identity: Are You Naked Online?” by local authors Theresa Payton (BIG Member) and Ted Claypoole

Authors Theresa Payton and Ted Claypoole begin their book “Protecting Your Internet Identity: Are you Naked Online?” by making the assumption that most of us don’t wish to live our lives as Madonna does, where nothing that isn’t exposed to public glare has meaning. For most of the rest of us, I think it’s fair to assume that there exists much information that we believe is “none of your damn business.” That being the case, it’s imperative that each of us understands that the internet poses serious risks of exposure and unauthorized use of our “private information,” and further understands how best to protect our privacy while using a medium that makes it difficult to counter the authors’ contention that “we are all entertainers and publishers now.” –Kevin Funnell

“We believe that privacy has value. Privacy protects our families and our peace of mind. Privacy is a strategy for shielding resources from thieves and our children from predators, it is a prudent business tactic for negotiations, and it is an important social tool when meeting new people”. -excerpt from the book

As a reminder, you don’t have to read the book! The facilitator will share the main principles from the book with the group.

The authors, Theresa Payton, Fortalice Solutions and Ted Claypoole, Womble Carlyle, will facilitate this stimulating discussion.

For an excerpt of this book, go to:

During this roundtable we'll:

· share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
· share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
· share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth

Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group. We are currently looking to fill the 2013 calendar. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month, so pick a month that suits you for 2013! A few of you have suggested books, so please send me an email for the month and book you would like to facilitate.
