Event Recap: Protecting Yourself from Cybercrime

Strategic Wealth Partners recently hosted a panel discussion on how you can protect yourself from cybercrime. The panel, moderated by Tom Buhrmann, Wealth Advisor, featured Adam Moseley, Managing Director at Charles Schwab Advisory Services and Lindsay Pflug, Manager of Training & Process Development. The panel fielded questions from the audience and shared tips and tricks on how to protect yourself online.

While a myriad of topics were covered, a primary point of discussion was email phishing attempts. “If you think an email is suspicious and you don’t recognize the sender, it is best to delete it and not click on any links,” Moseley said. Pflug added, “Even if the email is from a sender you recognize, such as your bank, you should never click on a link in it to login to your account. Instead, search using your browser and go to the institution’s main website and enter your credentials there”.

However, today technology has made it possible to take a much more impactful approach through ESG investing.

Should I Stay or Should I Go?
There’s no sugarcoating it; the current state of the markets has many of our clients thinking like the 1981 punk rock classic by The Clash: Should I stay or should I go now? If I go, there will be trouble And if I stay it will be double So come on and let me know Should I stay or should I go?* I don’t suspect that the song was meant as a commentary on portfolio management strategies. (In fact, the band has never disclosed any real meaning to the lyrics.)  Nonetheless, I do think it provides an appropriate framework for examining today’s investment world. So, let’s take a look at the cases for “going” and for “staying.”
