About The Chamber

Ransomware in the News – Don’t cry over WannaCry!

TEST

Try these techniques to protect yourself and your company:

  • Utilize Spam Filters: To protect against spam mails, spam filters should be used.
  • Change Passwords Often: An easy and often overlooked measure to ensure security is to change passwords on a regular basis.
  • Browser Setting Updates: Modify your browser settings to prevent malleolus websites from opening.
  • Report: Individuals can report phishing to industry groups; legal action can be taken against these fraudulent/bad actors.
  • Think Before You Click: Phishing relies on users to make mistakes. Safe websites generally begin with “https”. If the website from the email does not contain “https”, it could be a phishing email (Phishing.org).
  • Institute a User-Awareness-Training-Program: This is an incredibly inexpensive program that can yield huge benefits in terms of raising the general knowledge/awareness level of your staff. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”…don’t get into a compromised position to begin with.

Guests Experience A Royal Affair at Our 2017 Bucks County Ball!

TEST

2017 Bucks County BallIt was a sparkling and spirited evening at the Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce’s royal-themed Bucks County Ball on April 1, 2017. Guests of the annual gala, held at the Radisson Hotel in Trevose, PA, walked the red carpet, had their photos taken and stepped into a regally decorated ballroom fit for a king or queen.

This party with a purpose was an evening of mingling with almost 200 business professionals as well as Renaissance Faire guests, dancing, having caricatures drawn, gaming, and enjoying specialty drinks such as “The Queen of Hearts”. “It was a fun filled evening at this year’s signature event. The Bucks County Ball is a perfect opportunity to catch up with some old friends and to meet a few new ones, too. We enjoyed he sounds of the Party Wave Band and the always favorite gaming with Tumbling Dice,” stated Board Chair Suzy Buhler of McCafferty Auto, the event’s Grand Sponsor.

The royal feast included delicious selections for dinner followed by a dessert table of assorted sweets. “What an amazing night at our 5th Annual Bucks County Ball. It was absolutely a Royal Affair. Thank you to all of our sponsors, committee members, staff, and attendees. This was definitely a party with a purpose to be remembered! Business relationships were being created and strengthened while enjoying dinner, dancing, gaming live music, Renaissance guests and more,” recounted LBCCC President Amy M.B. McKenna.
