Wednesday March 30 – Thursday March 31, 2022

The Austin Cybersecurity Expo is Officially in the Books!

Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out and for those who couldn't make it, sorry we missed you and will see you at the next event coming soon!

The event was heavily focused on raising awareness and heightening the nation’s defenses with a strong offense. From profound conversations on NIST and CISA to in-depth presentations on cyber insurance, zero-trust environments and sustainability, both days were packed with valuable information for the MSP community. Cybersecurity is the moving target that will continue to gain relevance with business owners and leaders in the coming months and years, and MSPs who take a stand have a greater chance of retaining existing clients − and winning new customers.

Those are just a few of the topics covered at the event, held March 30th-31st Austin. With twenty-seven cybersecurity vendors and scores of MSPs, MSSPs, and other channel professionals in attendance, there were many collaborative and insightful conversations. Good cybersecurity practices depend on that level of sharing and caring!

Be sure to join the discussion at our next IoTSSA Cybersecurity Expo in Phoenix, September 14th-15th, 2022. Save the date and watch your email for registration details − coming soon! #bettertogether

“IOT Security Services Association just hit a homerun with one of the first in-person events over the last 2 years.  The recent Cybersecurity Expo in Charlotte was a hit with engaging speakers, timely content and some of the best prizes I have ever seen. Robin and the team have scored a win with this event and I am eager to attend all future events.”

Brian Mangum, Founder, Brightflow Technologies

“Upon attending my first IoTSSA Cybersecurity event, I will admit I was impressed by the quality and density of valuable information available to me as an IT security-focused executive. There were highly relevant presentations, and the portfolio of sponsors was broad enough to answer numerous partner needs I had going in to the event. I plan to attend many more IoTSSA events in the future based on this first experience. This is worth your time if you are a decision maker in the IT security services space for SMB clients.”

Bill Hammelman, CCP Tech , Carolina Computer Partners

“I skip more events than I attend as they turn out to be another ploy to get you to pay for services that you don’t need. Free lunch is never worth the hassle. This was by far one of the most informative, entertaining, and productive events I have ever been too. My team has met some truly outstanding individuals who just want to make the IT community better. Of course, we will buy and recommend the companies we met even though that was not their overall objective. Great job guys and look forward to the next event.”

Demetrius Rouse, ITM SMB Services Manager, MRE Consulting

“Yesterday’s Cyber Security Expo was top notch. This was my first IoTSSA event to attend and I am 100% a fan. Everyone was on the same page and all of the information was relevant to the topic – Cyber Security. Time very well spent with industry experts and peers alike. Furthermore, I believe we will be partnering with a least one new vendor from the event; possibly multiple.”

Slade Stargel, Owner, Stargel Office Solutions

“It was a very amazing experience, with a lot of information and knowledge, excellent vendors stack and incredible networking and golf time. I travelled from Florida to the IoTSSA in Texas and it was really worth it. See you at the next one.”

Yon Aizpurua, Network Specialist, Social Wireless Technologies
“IoTSSA’s Expo events are one of a kind! It is a great place to learn about the vast majority of security products and expert advice. I can’t wait for the next event!”
Matt Schreiber, Network Systems Specialist, Northstar Technology
“The event was obviously well organized and very relevant to our business, engaging and fun. The presenters were compelling – I left with several new exciting ideas about how to improve my company and better serve our customers.”
Emory Vandiver, VP Business Operations/Partner, Interactive Security
“Iotssa’s event showcased security-centric solutions that enable MSP’s to further strengthen the integrity of client environments. Additionally, the educational aspect was both eye opening and paramount in positioning our organization as trusted advisors in this ever changing, fast-paced technological landscape.”
Anton Major, Director of Technology, VELOCIT
“Whenever I attend an event I have to assess if it was worth the time out of the office. The IoTSSA conference easily passes that threshold. Great presentations, 1-on-1 with relevant vendors and many peer conversations.”
Alan Edwards, CISM, ITIL, Chief Information Officer, Computerware
“The IoTSSA live events and Security Blog are invaluable resources for our team to stay updated on the latest in the cybersecurity industry. The live events provide a good mix of content from industry leaders and feedback from peer IT service providers.”
Eric Madden, President , Astute Technology Management
“The time was well spent for my team to get an update to the security issues of the day and methods and partners who are complementary to the services we provide as an MSP. With so much information coming at us on security issues, IoTSSA summarizes the dominant issues and provides solution paths – Which was very beneficial.”
Jason Comstock, President , Clarity Technology Solutions
