Series of workshops on IT, internet safety, and commonly-used software continue at Greater Brookfield Chamber of Commerce

Brookfield, Wis. – August 31, 2015 – The Greater Brookfield Chamber of Commerce (GBCC) announces that Tech Trends will continue its monthly workshops due to unprecedented success. The next session will be on Thursday, September 10, 2015, at 11:30am-1:00pm. A light lunch is served at each session at the Chamber office, 17100 W Bluemound Road, Suite 202, Brookfield, WI 53005.

The topic of the third workshop is Firewalls. If your PC is connected to the Internet, it is vulnerable to threats, such as hackers and Trojans. A firewall functions as a shield between the Internet and your PC.

Gjeret Stein, founder and president of Sensible Gurus, is the presenter for Tech Trends. Stein said, “It’s important to know why there are different types of firewalls, what each type is used for, and which type will work best for your business.”

The event is free for GBCC members, and $15 for non-members. Registration is required, and non-members must pre-pay online. To register, visit the GBCC online events calendar at
