Every business needs some level of protection from hackers. VARs, MSPs, ITSPs and MSSPs are responsible for protecting their clients from cyber attacks. Do you really have what it takes to protect your clients and yourself?

Hosted by Julian Lee, Publisher of e-ChannelNEWS.

Panelist: Joe Cummins has focused his career as an offensive cybersecurity professional, and now as a seasoned serial Entrepreneur within North America’s cyber ecosystem.

1:45 PM to 2:00 PM: Bio Break

2:00 PM to 2:20 PM: Workshop: Building World-Class Cyber Security Protection Managed Services

Every business needs cyber security. As such, every MSSP, MSP or VAR must either build out a security offering or outsource to a third party. Failure to do this right will accelerate them towards becoming marginalized in the industry. Who better to make the case than one of America’s premier Managed Services Provider, TPX. Started 17 years ago, today they service over 50,000 customer locations across USA. They are at the top of most MSP lists and work with other channel partners. In this session, find out how they have built a vibrate cyber security offering and how you can leverage.

Speaker: Jared Martin, Vice President MSx Managed Services at TPx Communications.

2:20 PM to 2:40 PM: Workshop: Strengthening the weakest link in Cyber Attack Prevention

Explore the weakest link in just about every organization’s cyber security defence and how any channel partner can quickly help their customers to plug this gaping hole. It's about employee awareness and making them part of their team’s cyber security defence. Without their support, all cyber security defences are vulnerable. All channel partners must get their customers educated on being part of the solution instead of part of the problem. Up until know, educating employees on cyber attack tactics has been a daunting challenge, which employees usually dread. You will hear from a top leader in the cyber security education space as he introduces the most advance and interesting platform to help all channel partners solve this problem for all of their customers. It uses online, self-paced gamification to make the learning fun, engaging and verifiable! Any channel partner can help their client solve this problem while making solid recurring revenues. You just gotta see this!

Speaker: Scott Wright, CEO of Click Armor. Scott has been teaching and training people on cyber security best practices before it was a thing. He has trained governments and business.
