Tech Forum September Update

A Note form the Board

It’s hard to believe that September is coming to an end. I hate to say it but we will be noticing this white, cold material on the ground before we know it.

Before we think about that, don’t forget that October is Cyber Security month. It’s a great time to remind employees that phishing emails are at an all-time high. Clicking a link can open a backdoor to your network or trigger a ransomware infection.

It was a busy 3rd Wednesday at the Riverfront this month! We had a great turnout and I noticed several people who had a name badge from our event and the State Chamber event happening across the hall. That’s what I call maximizing your networking.

I met with our events committee this week to discuss some upcoming events and I’m proud to say we are working on some great events over the next year. This month we are featuring Bancroft Construction and how they are leveraging technology to build in Delaware. I’ve discussed the topics with them and have to say I’m looking forward to learning more. It should be a great event.

Tech Forum in News


     
  Networking Station, Tech Forum Bring Business People to Riverfront
 
   
On a busy evening on the Wilmington Riverfront, the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce  rolled out  its annual Delaware Networking Station tabletop expo event and  the Technology Forum of Delaware held a fall networking event

The Chamber event featured more than 100 business exhibitors.  Co-sponsor  is the Better Business Bureau of Delaware.

This year, online giant Google was on hand to offer information on getting businesses online.

The annual  tabletop event, believed to be the largest of its kind in northern Delaware, came as St. Hedwig’s Roman Catholic Church was holding its annual carnival on the Riverfront.

Next door at the Westin, the Technology Forum of Delaware held its September Fall Into Networking get-together on the Riverfront.

The tech forum holds monthly educational and networking events for those working or having an interest in technology in Delaware and adjacent areas.
