Who uses computers? Who uses email? Who advertises on online? Who posts on social media? Instagram? Facebook? Who tweets? What governs our activity? We are governed by the laws laid out in general statutes, by administrative rules from the NCREC, by the Code of Ethics, by company policies, by our own moral and ethical codes. So, how do we “do it right”? How do avoid the pitfalls, keep ourselves and our clients safe and avoid the ever increasing hazards presented to us in a world of ever-changing technological advances and new threats every day?
Today we are going to cover a lot of online hazards. Some you may know, some, maybe not. While this course is not intended to make you an expert on any of these topics, it will make you aware of threats you face in the course of doing business. Hopefully it will make you look at what systems you have in place and what you can do to keep yourself out of trouble. Hopefully it will make you think. Hopefully you will learn something or think about a topic in a way you didn’t before. Hopefully it will keep you safe and compliant with both the Code of Ethics and the laws and rules that govern our business practices. Hopefully it will help you navigate the world of Risky Business.
