A strong line-up of speakers for the event includes ex-hacker, turned highly respected and sought-after security expert, Cal Leeming who will talk about the weaknesses in many vendor-driven solutions and what channels need to do to keep customers safe. He will also look at the real story around AI in security solutions and expose some of the myths about what it offers.

In other keynotes Rory Duncan, Research Vice President for Cloud Service Providers, IDC will present: Snog, Marry, Avoid: Security Technologies you need… and some you probably don’t - an irreverent but informative look at the technology choices facing the channel - includes audience voting and live feedback. And Tim Jeffcoat, Manager - Sales Engineering, Datto EMEA will present: Criminals have transitioned to as-a-service. It’s time you did too – an examination and demonstration of how a global hack-as-a-service industry is evolving as criminals turn to the Dark Web to get off-the-shelf exploits, malware, and ransomware and some views on what the channel needs to do to mitigate against ransomware attacks.

Among the technology trends examined will be the likely impacts of AI and IoT and the growing importance of managed security services embracing on-premise, cloud and hybrid solutions. Subject areas addressed will include: Latest Security Trends, Application and Endpoint Security, Cyber Security, Data Security, Security as a Service and Compliance.
