We are on a mission to help the channel community crack the cybersecurity nut
Our one-day events are held at “TOP Golf” locations throughout the United States. This event is very different and obviously much shorter than our two-day events. There will be a dedicated main room where the usual conference sessions, keynotes, panel discussions, and Lions' Den will take place. Each participating vendor will have their own “golf bay” where they can display their solutions and host any type of fun activity. These vendor exposition areas will be open for lunch and later in the afternoon. The socializing and fun will continue into the late afternoon.
The content we will cover at these one-day events will include, but not limited to:
The latest in cybersecurity managed service business practices
CISO panel discussion
Cybersecurity Defense Ecosystem's new releases
Cybersecurity Marketplace update
Masterclass on Selling Risks and scaling cybersecurity services
Cybersecurity vendor expo showcasing the latest solutions
Cybersecurity Expert Panels and More!
Stay ahead of the cybersecurity curve by getting the latest information about the threats that MSPs, MSSPs, SOCs and vendors face, as well as how this affects your business and your customers. Explore the most recent tools, knowledge, and networking opportunities with the IT Channel's leading cybersecurity experts.
Cybersecurity Trends With Jay McBain
Thursday Evening Activities to be announced.
"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."
"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."
“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.”
“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
