IoT Playbook and The ChannelPro Network Announce the Cybersecurity Online Summit

Added to IoTplaybook or last updated on: 06/17/2018

Why are IoT Playbook and ChannelPro producing a Cybersecurity Summit?

“Cybersecurity is by far the biggest threat to businesses worldwide, and the biggest challenge—and opportunity—for integrators and solution providers,” says ChannelPro and IoT Playbook Publisher Michael Siggins. “This free, brand-new event features a full day of online education, best practices, and training on protecting businesses with profitable security offerings.”

The cybersecurity threat landscape has been growing exponentially, with the the Internet of Things (IoT) adding an entirely new level of threats. IT professionals struggle to keep up with not only the latest threats, but the best tools to combat them as well. According to industry statistics:

  • Worldwide spending on security solutions will rise from $91.4 billion this year to more than $120 billion in 2021, according to analyst organization IDC.
  • Ransomware attacks against businesses rose 90 percent last year, according to security vendor Malwarebytes.
  • The FBI estimates that the total amount of ransomware payments approaches $1 billion annually.

Who should attend?

Integrators, solution providers, and MSPs who want education, best practices, and training on protecting their clients with profitable security offerings.

When is the event?

The event is free online August 14, 2018, and then available on demand. Register here.

Why is the event online?

According to ChannelPro and IoT Playbook Executive Editor Rich Freeman, “Integrators, solution providers, and MSPs are hungry for information on trends and opportunities in cybersecurity, but short on time. Delivering our security summit entirely online suits their busy schedules while also giving our sponsors an extremely easy and convenient way to reach this audience without incurring travel costs or other expenses.”

What topics will be covered?

The event features a dynamic and timely series of sessions on topics ranging from opportunities in IoT security to generating recurring monthly revenue with security services, grappling with security-related legal risks, building a security sales lead-generation machine, and more.

Integrator professionals interested in attending should visit here to register for free.

Sponsorships are limited. Interested sponsors should contact Joel Zaidspiner at 561-422-5119 or Lisa Sherman at 917-388-9531. Sponsorship info can be found here.
