PSA, SIA to Present Cybersecurity Track at TEC 2020
The premier educational event for systems integrators will also feature a keynote by Alex Ross, one of America’s leading experts on innovation.
WESTMINSTER, Colo. – PSA, a security and systems integrator consortium, and the Security Industry Association (SIA) are collaborating once again to offer an exclusive cybersecurity educational track at PSA TEC 2020. The event will be held April 20- 23 at the Sheraton Downtown in Denver.
Titled CyberTEC, the track’s coursework will feature sessions on cyberattack risk mitigation, cybersecurity managed services, cyber hygiene compliance and more.
“SIA and PSA have worked effectively together to improve the industry’s awareness of cybersecurity. The CyberTEC track powered by SIA reinforces the commitment both organizations have made to ensuring the industry has access to the training it needs to reduce cyber risk and open doors to new business opportunities,” says Don Erickson, CEO, SIA.
PSA also announced TEC 2020 keynote speaker Alec Ross, a New York Times best-selling author and former senior advisor for innovation with the U.S. Department of State. The keynote address will be presented by SIA and take place April 22 at 7:30 a.m.
“We are thrilled to work together with SIA in developing our cybersecurity education for PSA TEC 2020 and presenting Alec Ross as our keynote speaker,” states Anthony Berticelli, vice president of operations for PSA. “SIA’s team has invaluable connections in the industry, and partnering with them has raised the bar for the cyberTEC track. Likewise, the insight that Mr. Ross can provide will be thought provoking for all security industry professionals.”
Ross is one of America’s leading experts on innovation, having worked with the State Department during the Obama administration on goals of maximizing the potential of technology and innovation in the service of America’s diplomatic goals. He advanced the State Department’s interests on a range of issues including internet freedom, cybersecurity, disaster response and the use of network technologies in conflict zones.
His best-selling book, The Industries of the Future, explores the technological and economic trends and developments that will shape the next decade, from cybersecurity and big data to the commercialization of genomics to the code-ification of money, markets and trust.
PSA TEC 2020 is billed as the premier education and networking event for all professional systems integrators in the security and audio-visual markets. This year’s conference will feature over 125 education sessions, workshops and certification offerings from industry-leading experts and partner organizations categorized into dedicated learning tracks focused on job function.
The educational content includes sessions for systems integration professionals with a desire to stay relevant and thrive in changing markets through personal and professional development.
