ITPalooza Tickets at Prices for Every Budget – A Tremendous Value!

We are just about 3 weeks away from our big event, ITPalooza, which is being held on Thursday December 7th at the Broward Convention Center. Part of what we wanted to insure is that we continued to get our South Florida Tech Community involved and thus make sure that this was affordable for everyone that wanted to participate. We also wanted to make sure that we continued our support of the US Marines Toys for Tots Program, which last year ITPalooza was the 3rd largest contributor of Toys in the region, which is acknowledged in the video clip by the US Marines, who presented us 2 awards at the bottom of this message.

The pricing for #itp17 is simple, if you bring a Toy for donation to the US Marines Toys for Tots, then your cost is $35 + the Toy or you can pay $65 to attend. If you choose to attend our Evening/After Hours Event from 5pm-7pm, your admission is free if you again bring a Toy for donation. Finally for those that want to attend our VIP Experience, that cost is $250. You can register for any of these options at www.itpalooza.org.

ITPalooza is a great opportunity to Learn-Connect-Grow with the Strategic Technology Leaders of South Florida all under one roof in one day! We have Thought Leaders, Speakers and Panelists from some of the most impactful organizations in our area such as AutoNation, Modernizing Medicine, Dell/EMC, Vitas Healthcare, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, IronHack, ABB Optical Group, Jackson Health System, Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, US Gas & Electric, First Green Bank, IBM, Mount Sinai Medical Center, WLRN Public Radio & Television and many, many more!

There is tremendous value in what ITPalooza is bringing to the community so please purchase your tickets today at www.itpalooza.org.

Thanks in advance for your support!

Glen Benjamin – Candidate for Hire!

Friends and Followers,

In case you hadn’t heard yet, Host.net was acquired by 365 Data Centers earlier this week and my position was eliminated unfortunately. I’m looking for a role in Technical Sales or Business Development for Data Center, Cybersecurity, Cloud, Connectivity, Continuity, Compliance, although certainly not limited in those areas.

I would appreciate any referrals to organizations looking to hire as like the rest of us, I would like to find the right role with the right company as quickly as I can.

In the interim, I’m also focused on helping driving sponsorships for ITPalooza, which is coming up on December 7th at the Broward Convention Center. Additional information on sponsorships and how to register is available at www.itpalooza.org and certainly feel free to reach out to me with any questions.

My contact information is the same, but just in case I’ll list it below and I would appreciate you sharing this message with your organizations and hopefully connect me with the appropriate hiring managers.

Glen Benjamin – Membership with Infragard

Glen Benjamin_Infraguard_Membership Card

I’m proud to be a Member of the South Florida Alliance with Infragard, which is a partnership between the FBI and members of the private sector. The InfraGard program provides a vehicle for seamless public-private collaboration with government that expedites the timely exchange of information and promotes mutual learning opportunities relevant to the protection of Critical Infrastructure. With thousands of vetted members nationally, InfraGard’s membership includes business executives, entrepreneurs, military and government officials, computer professionals, academia and state and local law enforcement; each dedicated to contributing industry specific insight and advancing national security.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding Infragard and how we can assist with your Cyber Security efforts. Thanks! Glen

As I wrote this blog, the CEO of Equifax stepped down due to the recent breach of a tremendous amount of data. The comments from their press release include: “”The Board remains deeply concerned about and totally focused on the cybersecurity incident…We are working intensely to support consumers and make the necessary changes to minimize the risk that something like this happens again…”

These are very powerful words from an organization that is now subject to fines in the $20B area as this Cyberattack included personal details including names, Social Security numbers of 143M consumers plus credit card numbers for 209K people and documents for another 182K people. The $20B fine alone could effectively shut Equifax down and I suspect that we are all asking ourselves, “What can we do?”

This is obviously a very complex issue, so I have a couple of items for your consideration. The first option is to download an eBook from Host.net that summaries the latest Cyberattacks including:

  • How the latest wide-spread threats have changed the security landscape
  • How to combat common tactics used by hackers and cybercriminals
  • How to build a multi-layered security strategy (step-by-step guide)
  • How to respond when an attack occurs
  • New and evolving threats
  • The future of the security industry

I’m also co-presenting along with 3 other Boca Chamber Members on October 4th at the Boca Chamber on “Cybersecurity – Prepare, Protect, Defend” where we are going to share what we all can do to protect ourselves and our organizations from these types of attacks.

Please visit the links below to download the Cybersecurity eBook as well as register for the October 4th Cybersecurity discussion and once you have done the, please contact me at Glen@Host.net or 954-974-6262 and follow me on Twitter @glenbenjamin.

Be Safe Out There!
