Last year, Acronis hosted the world’s largest gathering of cyber protection professionals for a two-and-a-half-day exploration into this new IT discipline. We’re excited to repeat that successful and informational show this coming October because, as of today, registration for the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020 is now open.
Once again we’ll take over the Fontainebleau Miami Beach in Miami, FL with an anticipated 2,000 attendees exploring the latest trends and opportunities in modern cyber protection – the transformational IT discipline that ensures organizations are #CyberFit. As the premier event focused on cyber protection, we’ll bring together thought leaders, CIOs, service providers, resellers, distributors, developers, and enterprise businesses from around the world.
The Summit will run October 19-21, kicking off on Monday, October 19 with a full day of live training and certification sessions, followed by the conference’s Welcome Reception that evening. The next two days will offer high-profile keynotes and panel discussions, customer and partner advisory councils, in-depth technical breakouts, and technology showcases – all focused on strengthening the cyber protection position of organizations, service providers, and the customers they support.
Building on success
The Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020 follows the success of last year’s inaugural event that featured world-renowned speakers including the CEO of The Herjavec Group Robert Herjavec, Security Analyst and Researcher at Tel Aviv University Keren Elazari, and American former FBI counter-terrorism and counterintelligence operative Eric O’Neill.
Speakers for the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020 will be announced soon, but this year’s program will deliver the same level of superior insights from industry leaders and engagement from the community of cyber protection professionals.
“The Acronis Global Cyber Summit was among the best shows we sponsored in 2019, said James Murphy, DevTech’s Vice President of Global Sales. “The location, content, and attendees were exactly what you look for in a successful summit. The opportunities to network and build relationships were exceptional. We will be back in 2020!”
In addition, attendees will see how to make their IT infrastructure #CyberFit with the most complete cyber protection solution, Acronis Cyber Protect. This comprehensive solution combines data protection and cybersecurity to provide 360-degree cyber protection in the form of backup and recovery, malware defenses, and endpoint security and management.
Committed to cyber protection
Acronis officially sparked the cyber protection revolution at the 2019 summit because “traditional backup is dead.” That’s because today’s organizations generate increasing amounts of data every day, making the idea of a "backup window" incompatible with the always-on nature of business. The value of an organization’s data, applications, and systems also makes them targets for hackers – so not only do they need to be backed up, they need to be protected from attacks with integrated cybersecurity.
By adopting the strategies and solutions that combine proven data protection with cutting-edge cybersecurity, organizations can address the Five Vectors of Cyber Protection — ensuring the safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security (SAPAS) of their data, applications, and systems. This enables organizations to be #CyberFit and ready to face any threat.
Acronis Founder and CEO Serg “SB” Bell strongly believes that given the nature of today’s digital world, cyber protection is as important as food, water, and shelter.
“In 2019 we launched the cyber protection revolution – showing the importance of integrating data protection and cybersecurity. The response has been overwhelming, particularly from the Acronis community, and the industry can now see why traditional backup is dead,” he explains. “As we lead up to Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020, we will continue expanding our ecosystem of cyber protection solutions and transforming the way organizations protect their data, applications, and systems.”
