Ryan Williams, Chief Technology Officer and Partner of Nexxtep, shared this comment about the upcoming symposium: “We surveyed our clients and friends to see which topics they wanted us to cover, and we created these three workshops based solely on their feedback. Our goal is to teach people the skills they have wanted to learn, but just haven’t had the time or the resources to get started. These workshops will be packed full of practical tips and tricks you can use to help make your business more secure and more profitable. You will learn what needs to be done but more importantly you will learn how to do it.”

Registration is open until September 16th. To receive a special discount of $5 off your ticket price, enter the promotional code “news” when you register online at
