Inaugural Cyber Data and Compliance Expo
31 October 2017 | 0
Renaissance has been a trusted partner to Irish resellers and their customers for over 30 years.
It introduces new, cutting edge and industry leading data security and compliance solutions to the Irish market and has helped implement circa 20 new security solutions over the past five years.
Now, responding to market pressure and an increased customer demand to understand practical solutions to avoid or recover from cyber-attacks, Renaissance has brought together key global leaders in the cyber solutions space. This 1-day expo will bring together the whole ‘cyber ecosystem’—vendors, resellers, end-user IT experts, and general business thought-leaders, keen to understand what they can do to mitigate security risks to their business.
Michael Conway, director, Renaissance states that “The need for such an event has been evident for some years, and with the advent of GDPR and the increased cyber threats and risks facing organisations, Renaissance believes that it is our duty as the leading data security distributor in the island of Ireland to deliver this ‘All-Ireland’ event. The event will differ from traditional conferences, allowing for a much more interactive approach for different types of customer to discuss their requirements and find the most appropriate solutions for their needs.”
“We are also delighted that so many security vendors, partners and industry experts have chosen to support this event and make it possible.”
Renaissance hopes that the fact that it this event is an EXPO, rather than a conference will encourage people to see this as something different. There are a lot of conferences/seminars ongoing on cyber security and GDPR related topics, but there is no event solely demonstrating the solutions on the market to solve these problems. The Internet is great for researching security products and solutions, but nothing beats having a real conversation with real people showing the practicalities of using this technology.
“The event will differ from traditional conferences, allowing for a much more interactive approach for different types of customer to discuss their requirements and find the most appropriate solutions for their needs”
Likewise, for the Irish resellers. This event will allow discussions with 20+ global security vendors; informing, educating and building relationships that will undoubtedly deliver business revenues in the coming months/years.
The world is changing. Cyber security threats are real. Attacks inevitably are happening, and will continue to happen. Breaches will occur. What is most productive is being given the tools to respond before true devastating damage can be inflicted. With the stakes rising and the cost of a breach remaining evermore debilitating, governments and organisations of ALL sizes are having to rethink their cyber strategy. We are all being forced to up our game across the entire threat lifecycle—prevention, detection, response.
Cyber Expo Ireland is an opportunity for resellers and business end users to take a step back in their business and consider the next steps for their secure, sustained growth.
