Channel-Sec London confirms agenda, keynotes

Channel-Sec, the high-level conference and networking event exploring the evolving nature of security issues faced by UK and European MSPs, MSSPs and IT resellers, has announced it will feature keynote addresses from Charlie McMurdie, former head of police national cyber-crime unit, and Jessica Figueras, vice chairman of the UK Cyber Security Council.

The event will be held on October 19, 2021, at the Royal Lancaster in London.

IT channels and service providers need to rethink their strategies in the face of rising and changing threats to their customers, whether it’s forming new partnerships, using marketing to enable new security business or keeping updated with technologies.

Security, of course, is a fast-developing discipline, and many of the themes and ideas at Channel-Sec will address what channels are looking for like solutions to address key vertical market compliance models or joining an eco-system with like-minded partners.

This event will offer a forum for developing better understanding, from the changing nature of the threat and identifying new opportunities, to building a sound business model. It will also cover specialist legal advice, training and education, understanding risk, exploring new technology areas such as IoT and AI, application, edge and end-point security, and the wider issues of negotiating security sales and implications for customers.

Other speakers include Jonathan Whitley, regional VP, Northern Europe, at Watchguard Technologies; Wilson Sanders, head of business development EMEA at IT Glue; Phylip Morgan, chief channel officer at Pax8; and Ben Jenkins, senior solutions engineer at ThreatLocker.
