The MSP community has been incredibly supportive of IoTSSA and its mission since its inception. From the Cybersecurity Expo events held in cities across the nation to the Secure Connections podcasts and online Security Experts panels, our channel audience and resource utilization is off the charts. Your support is greatly appreciated, and your feedback is always encouraged and welcomed.

Wait until you see what our team has in store for 2019. Without giving away specific details too soon, let’s just say the IoTSSA team will be unveiling new security practice-enhancing resources for MSPs throughout the year. It’s an exciting time to be in the channel, and we value the opportunity to work closely with so many knowledgeable cybersecurity professionals.

Of course, IoTSSA could never have gotten to this point without its vendor partners. Many of these time-tested security professionals traveled coast-to-coast to share insight and best practices with our Expo audiences and continue to expand their knowledge and expertise. From braving the elements in Ohio and New Jersey to enjoying the warmth of Texas and Arizona, these thought leaders bring tremendous value to the discussions and our members.

Recognizing Cybersecurity Excellence  

Many of our members go the extra mile. From creating valued educational presentations for our events to sharing unique cybersecurity strategy tips in podcasts and virtual panels, they love helping MSPs build stronger and more valuable practices ‒ and it shows.

Our team is recognizing that effort with several new honors. Our annual IoTSSA Community Awards recognize member cybersecurity content contributions in three separate categories: Best Podcast, Best Virtual Panel, and Best Overall Community Engagement.

Bringing Security to Your Neighborhood

Annual honors are just a part of the story. We will present the new IoTSSA Cybersecurity Expo Awards following each regional event with each winner determined our post-show surveys. These one-day educational events bring the advanced IT security classroom to MSPs in communities all over North America each year; with six cities scheduled for 2019.

IoTSSA is leading the charge for advanced cybersecurity practices. Our Expo events cover a bevy of channel-specific security topics with content developed by the association, CompTIA, ChannelPro magazine, and our vendor members. The IoTSSA Cybersecurity Expo Awards go to the organizations that our audience felt made the most impact on their businesses at each event.
