Our guest speaker, Clark Baker with Merrill Lynch, spoke to us on financial security in the cloud.
Mr. Baker started with a short history of a computer in the 1950's that filled a room designed for one user on to 2001 with the jump start of iCloud service by Amazon that has morphed in to today's version. He reassured us how secure the Cloud is now and how it is in the best interest of companies such as Bank of America to protect consumers against hackers. He also explained the “Vault” at Bank of America with their firewall protection and the Good app for secured mobile work and led a discussion on consumer privacy.
