It’s coming! The Secure360 conference is only one week away. We’re super excited, and with so much stuff going on, we thought we’d highlight for you 5 things to do when you’re here:
Can’t wait to get started? The preconference begins Monday, May 13 at 7 AM with registration and workshops at 8 AM and 1 PM. Each session has two workshops to choose from, and with great topics like IT consumerization, managing vendor information and security, business and government continuity plans and privacy, it might be hard to choose.
Secure360 World Run/Walk for ECHO
We know you’ll be getting a lot out of the conference this year, and this run/walk is your opportunity to give something back to the community – and move your legs after your flight! You can choose to do either 5k or 10k, and you don’t even have to run. Proceeds go to support ECHO Minnesota, a multi-lingual organization communicating with Minnesota’s immigrants and refugees about health, safety, civic engagement and emergency readiness.

He’ll take a look at trends and long term predictions to help decipher if our weather is getting more severe over time.
See Saint Paul
If you’re not spending every ounce of energy you have at the conference, you should see St. Paul. It’s a great city! Within walking distance from the conference you’ll find two museums: the Minnesota History Center and the Science Museum of Minnesota, currently featuring the Body Worlds exhibit. If museums aren’t your thing, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy St. Paul, but please, excuse our late spring!

It’ll be hard to keep up with everything, so we’ll be live-tweeting during the conference. Keep up with us at hashtag #Sec360. See you there!
