This year I went to the IT Web Security Summit 2019 #ITWebSS2019 which was hosted by CISCO, but it was slightly different going in as a Delegate over being a Keynote Speaker.
It was a lot more fun to say the least, I found bouncing around each booth/stand and catching up with current partners (Vendors, Distributors and Service Providers) enjoyable. Good to have some introducing me to other and recommending my services which is always great (thanks Craig).
I also found my inner child and realised we all still a bit geeky deep down, all the Cyber security enthusiastic. Even if you the Technical guy or the Business Development hero its weird how a Nerf gun shooting range (Cybereason), Carnival teddy bear machine (Mimecast) or Game show style activities hosted by LawTrust would ignite these events to make them not just about “Selling”
Don’t get me wrong there was plenty pulling people aside and having a quick “pitch”, but I really enjoyed the Keynotes and stories that came from this year’s event.
Seem it’s all about collaboration and collectively trying to share info about how we can better the Security posture in South Africa and educate the community
