This seminar was timely and relevant for me because I’ve spent more time communicating online on a personal and business level. I found the facilitator to be knowledgeable in the subject matter and he was able to communicate the info in a simple and jovial manner. My awareness has risen toward possible online and physical threats to person and property. I would definitely begin to apply some of the protection measures that I learnt from this seminar. Thanks to Christian and Rhics Tech for sharing knowledge.
