For those who have wished they could attend a seminar and immediately return to work with usable information, Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) has just the ticket.

HACC will host a Speakers Marketplace with several day-long sessions this spring designed to provide attendees with practical, effective business advice. In addition to the seminar itself, each session will include time for personal questions.

Each session will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the C. Ted Lick Wildwood Conference Center on HACC's Wildwood Campus in Harrisburg. Parking is free, and a luncheon buffet is included in the registration fee of $199 per person per session.

The program kicks off on Monday, April 26 with The Layered Approach to Information Security: Why It's Vital to Your Business. Speaker Kari Pace understands the needs for business operations to be both productive and secure.

Drawing on a decade of experience in information technology consulting for government and private-sector clients, Pace will help attendees understand where to look for weaknesses and how to strengthen their defenses in both hardware and software applications. She will send participants back to work with the knowledge to implement a full-scale information security plan.

On Tuesday, May 18, Glen Christopher will discuss Eight Things That Hackers Really Don't Want Your Company to Know. Christopher, former Executive Briefing Center Manager for MCI Telecommunications, has been building, designing and managing computer systems for 20 years for clients such as the American Academy of Physicians and the Institute of Internal Auditors.

Christopher will review the risks, profile the perpetrators and reveal who is a target and why. He will send participants back to work with the knowledge that will help prevent their company from becoming a victim.

On Tuesday, May 25, lawyer, businessman, personnel consultant and trainer Max Muller will present Cutting Through the Confusion About ADA, FMLA and Workers' Comp.

This is one seminar human resources professionals will not want to miss. Attendees will benefit from the unique perspective and experience of someone who understands the intricacies of dealing with these programs and has worked with such leading corporations as Johnson & Johnson and KPMG Peat Marwick.

Muller will send participants back to work with a usable understanding of complex HR issues.

The spring series concludes on Wednesday, June 16, with a look at Security Essentials to Make and Keep Your Office Safe. Former police officer Pennie Murray, once equipped with a badge, handcuffs and a strong demeanor, has taken her experience as a crime fighter to another level now as consultant, author and trainer.

Murray will build attendees' level of awareness about office security and help them recognize and resolve dangerous situations before they can harm their business. She will send participants back to work with the knowledge to protect their organizations from potential security threats.
