Emerging technologies, Artificial intelligence, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, UL 827 and 2900, Data backup, encryption, and recovery and all the “things that matter” as it relates to running and securing an effective security business.

That’s the focus of The Monitoring Association’s second annual “TMA Technology Summit” coming up February 26-28 in Salt Lake City.

We invite CTOs, CIOs, and IT directors of monitoring companies, as well as dealers, owners, and interested participants from manufacturing companies, to join us to discuss technology issues that directly affect monitoring centers in this highly valuable, problem-solving environment. Join your peers to explore relevant topics with immediate takeaways to take back to your company.

Last year we heard from experts from Amazon, Microsoft, Rubrik, Secuvant, Telarus, AT&T and other tech innovators all while sharing practical industry specific practices of participants during this unique event.

While we continue to finalize this year’s agenda, make sure you plan to arrive prepared for two full days with an early start Wednesday, Feb 27.

With the success of last year’s inaugural event, demand is high, and space is limited, make your reservations now!  Hotel room block expires on February 1st.

The modern workforce has changed. People no longer sit at a company provided desk, within company walls, working on company provided computers. Keeping up with software upgrades and patches is difficult when users are not plugged into the local network and worse when they are BYOD. These machines become liabilities and help-desk support nightmares. Virtual desktops are a game changer.  Centralized administration, easy upkeep and high security are just some of the highlights. Learn how this technology can change the game in your business.
