About this event

It's a new decade and we are all being challenged to fortify our businesses in these dynamic and uncertain times. Accelerated software development cycles, continuous advancements in hardware and networks, increased reliance on remote based teams and ever-present cybersecurity threats are just some of what we face.

Staying on top of it all is mission critical and here in Southern California we have some of the best solutions and partners ready to help.
