Tarleton State University’s School of Criminology has announced a Cybersecurity Summit set for September 13th.
FBI and U.S. Secret Service officials join Tarleton’s School of Criminology, Criminal Justice and Strategic Studies for a cybersecurity summit designed to help North Texas entrepreneurs protect their brands from the all-too-inevitable data breach.
The event takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the George W. Bush Institute, on SMU Blvd., in Dallas. Cost for the event is $149 and includes lunch. The summit is ideal for CEOs, as well as chief security and information officers.
The keynote speaker is Bryan Sartin, managing director of Verizon’s RISK Labs and founder of Verizon Investigative Response, one of the world’s largest non-military Information Technology investigation groups.
County commissioners on Monday approved a new contract with Emergicon, an emergency medical consultant, to handle Erath County’s EMS billing, claims recovery and collections for other rescue services.
It costs the county money every time EMS personnel respond to an incident and in most cases, the citizens involved are responsible for covering at least part of those costs. EMS personnel are trained to respond to emergencies, not to be accountants or bookkeepers.
So, the county subcontracts with Emergicon to handle accurate billing for their emergency responses, as well as working on claims recovery for billing of incidents where collection is a problem. They have over 80 clients like Erath County and bill for more than 100,000 runs each year.
