News and Views - with Neil Herber

1) Topics. What do you want to hear? Why? What don't you want to hear? The Exec dilemma. Please email your suggestions to the exec!
-- Suggestions from the meeting:
--- Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). Why, how and who? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_private_network
--- Sync.com demo/description. (referral link: http://www.sync.com/get-started?_sync_refer=520d7a1a0 ). "For every friend who installs Sync on their computer, we'll upgrade both your accounts with 1 GB of storage space"

--- Boulevard VR. Boulevard creates immersive, user-controlled experiences and enriched art education content unlike any other in virtual, augmented and mixed reality. http://blvrd.com/

2) Longer break -- longer talk.

3) News, old news, scams, & opinions:

--- 'Mind-blowing' gaffes at QuadrigaCX. See https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/quadrigacx-1.5019176   Pinheads still in charge transfer 1/2 million $ to locked cold wallets.

--- Social Engineering Employed to Steal Data.  https://www.infosecurity-magazine.com/news/social-engineering-employed-to-1/  Has links to a Q4 2018 trend report with nifty graphs. Also see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_engineering_(security)
