12:00 - 12:30 | Keynote Panel: Emerging Technologies
As we kick off the event, we are joined by three of our practice leads where they will be discussing new technologies every company should be paying attention to, but also how to secure them. Technology can be a huge asset to organizations. From migrating to the cloud and having all your data stored in one centralized location, to communication and collaboration platforms to help keep employees efficient; technology can enable companies to do more. However, security and compliance still need to be at the forefront of every user. Our team will walk you through some of the upcoming products from our top partners, but more importantly, the security components.

12:30 - 1:00 | Executive Panel: Surviving Security Breaches
As more and more companies are learning the extreme importance of internal cybersecurity support for their users, Managed Security as a Service (MSaaS) is growing in popularity. Businesses of any size can utilize IT-managed services and automation tools to elevate their security footprint. In this panel, attendees will learn about the significant cost savings, faster response times, and overall, fewer headaches by incorporating key security and compliance tools. They will highlight not only the importance of basic features you can implement but how IT operations can be more streamlined so your team can focus on the bigger picture.

1:00 - 1:20 | Sponsor Speaking Session - OneTrust Vendorpedia

1:20 - 1:40 | Sponsor Speaking Session - Imperva

1:40 - 2:10 | Security Awareness Training for the Remote User
Human error accounts for 95% of all security incidents. As many IT and cybersecurity personnel will note, threats are everywhere nowadays, and their users, well they do not always pay attention. In this panel, attendees will not only hear about the importance of training your users to be more aware and cautious but also how to create organizational policies to decrease the risk of threats. We will highlight the importance of security awareness training from a remote perspective. IT and cybersecurity teams have a greater need now to know what their users are doing while working from home. We will also discuss tools to keep remote users and your overall business environment secure. Your users are your last line of defense against security threats and you want them to be educated and alert.

2:10 - 2:30 | Sponsor Speaking Session - Datto

2:30 - 2:50 | Sponsor Speaking Session - Netwrix

2:50 - 3:20 | Technical Session: Securing Digital Transformation & Business Apps
In this technical session, our experts will be discussing the importance of application and cloud security in every organization. What are the tools for securing the cloud? What procedures need to be in place for the various applications your employees use? How does security teams keep track of the data being used? How can IT teams get the buy-in from executives on creating new security policies? Organizations in the cloud and subsequent cloud-based applications can be empowered to do their jobs in ways that we never thought possible. But that does not mean security should be forgotten.

Thank you to our sponsors!
