Four Hundred Monitor, November 2
November 2, 2022 Jenny Thomas
Welcome to the beginning of the quick slide into the holidays! The end of the year will be here before we know it, but that doesn’t mean you should start slowing down. It is important to continue to be vigilant with your data security, as we see in some of our Top Stories of the week. If you’ve got items for the Calendar, please send them my way as we are always looking to fill out this resource for our readers. It’s definitely not too early to start planning your 2023 travel schedule, although many events continue to offer that virtual option to give more people a chance to attend in some fashion.
