Hello everyone and Happy February to you! How are those New Year’s Resolutions of not missing a single Chat with Nat going?! Good, we hope. Except you did miss last week. Oh wait—that was us. Nevermind. We were busy with all things ITEXPO and figured we’d catch up with you today. So here it is, this week’s Chat with Nat: ITEXPO Recap and other VI Vignettes.
In Case You Missed It
This week, we featured two fantastic blog posts that you’ll want to check out if you missed them before. 6 Common Ways to Suffer a VoIP Attack and Top 10 Ways to Prevent VoIP Fraud Attacks.

…great--you're back. Now that you’ve been pumped with a plethora of proactive protection information, get ready to look for more. This coming week, we’ll have another post for you titled, "Top 8 Ways to Reduce VoIP Fraud Damages." Seeing a pattern with the fraud stuff? We’re watching out for you!
Those of us that were lucky to escape frigid Pittsburgh and head to sunny Miami for a few days last week had an amazing time at the ITEXPO! It was fantastic meeting so many of you and we hope you all made it back home safely! We made it back; though apparently half of our backdrop didn’t feel like returning and is still M.I.A. It could be on the beach for all we know. We digress—if you'd like to see more pictures from the tradeshow, head over to our Facebook page to check them out!
Also, the lovely folks at TMCnet spent some time interviewing our President Jason Tapolci. Take a look at this video!

ABG Luncheon + Business Risk Recap
Last week, Sharon K. and Cherie S., both from our parent company, ABG Capital, had the opportunity to attend a powerful talk by Rebecca Harris, Director of the Center for Women Entrepreneurship at Chatham University, about risk taking in business! It was hosted by the Association for Corporate Growth at the Fairmont Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh and was a great time had by all! Check out the blog post if you’re wondering when to take risks and when to pass on them.
We hope you have a fantastic Friday and enjoy your weekend, folks. We’ll be back next week with more recaps and exciting happenings from the world of VoIP Innovations!
