The importance of safeguarding your company’s and your company’s customers’ data is obvious. Since I wrote about data breaches a year ago in regards to how to place a security freeze to prevent identity theft, the list of prominent organizations who’ve suffered from data breaches is long. Disney, Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee, the University of Connecticut, hotel(s)… the list goes on – and that’s just in the last 45 days!

Art by Zen Pencils, advice by Bill Watterson. The advice hits home for us here at Blissbook. We are trying to make the world a better place to work by helping people find meaning and purpose at their current job. Or, if they can’t do that, find a new company whose values and beliefs match their own. Just because you don’t find fulfillment at your current company doesn’t mean you can’t find it anywhere!

And if that proves impossible, well, you should listen to Bill.
