Mission Possible: IT Security Best Practices For The Midmarket

MES is the Midmarket IT executive event of the year. We are excited to add this half-day workshop focusing on IT Security in the midmarket to the conference.  Security is consistently ranked in the top three challenges facing midmarket organizations today, and often takes the number one spot.  

Build the Ultimate IT Security Strategy

Take a Holistic Approach to Your Security Plans

Understand the "Human Factor" of Security

Mitigate the Damage of Security Breaches

Evaluate Your Options and Prioritize Your Security Initiatives

The IT professionals charged with leading their organization’s IT security strategy know they will never have enough budget or staff to ward off the biggest threats to their data assets. Given the heightened state of alert, business leaders think they may need the latest security technology in order to protect the company’s network and assets from sophisticated attacks. However, what IT security leaders really need to do is go back to basics and put into place security best practices that not only minimize business risk, but enable business success. For those professionals who must now demonstrate accountability to the Board and senior leaders, they need a practical IT security playbook that focuses not only the fundamentals, but also the right mix of partners and tech suppliers.

What Our Midmarket Executives Say

 Great event! Singular source for security connections, ideas & solutions. ” 
John Stephenson, Director of IT, Odyssey House, Inc. & Co.
 Staying current on IT Security requires a time commitment that I have yet to follow-through on this year. The Channel Company's MES IT Security Conference did the homework and the heavy lifting which allowed me several days of sessions and first-hand, interactive exposure to vendors and subject-matter experts.” 
― Angela Costakis, CIO, Clairborne Medical Center
"This was the first time attending this event and I was blown away by the format and content of this event. The boardrooms, whiteboarding sessions and the presentations. This event is relevant to all IT leaders in the mid-market space."
Marc Picardo, Director of IT, Wise Business Forms
MES IT Security brings a fresh approach to conferences through a format that facilitates engagement and discussion among business peers surrounding available security products and services.
 Adam Leisring, Sr. Director, Information Security, Paycor, Inc.
At first, I wasn't sure if my company and my situation would translate well to MES. Once I started networking with my peers at the summit, I found many others in almost identical business situations and facing the same issues I deal with - getting proper IT budget, how to efficiently manage a small IT workforce - and exchanging knowledge with them was invaluable..”
 Robert Vinagray, CIO, Burma Bibas, Inc.
