WCA Members Tour The Village at Westfield Topanga Site

WCA Board Members received a special treat last week when they toured the Village at Westfield Topanga project site! Hosted by WCA Members and Westfield representatives Larry Green and Molly Unger, Members were excited to see Westfield’s vision for this outdoor shopping destination coming together. What was abundantly clear to our Members is that the Village will become a fantastic Warner Center asset when it opens in Fall 2015!

WCA June ERSTF Meeting: Cybercrime Threats and Solutions Discussed

At the Warner Center Association’s June 2014 Emergency Response and Security Task Force (ERSTF) Meeting, our members learned about cybercrime, who are the entities that perpetrate this type of crime, and how it can threaten individual and company security. Most importantly, we discussed some key actions everyone can take to avoid cyber security vunerabilities, including the following:

1. Actively monitor security on all electronic devices
2. Stay in the loop with your IT provider on these issues
3. Monitor your remote storage – know where your backups are
4. Do not depend solely on firewalls
5. Understand the differences between cyber security and physical security
6. Remember that technology is always changing, and thus needs to be continually updated

Additionally, our members also heard from Assistant Sheriff Todd Rogers, candidate for the Los Angeles Sheriff Department (LASD), who spoke regarding his goals for the future of the LASD.
