Wow—what a year we’ve had over here at UMSA and the Secure360 events! A lot of new exciting changes took place this year, and we wanted to give a brief year-in-review to help everyone stay up-to-date.
Secure360 Twin Cities outgrew its venue!
The Secure360 Twin Cities event has continued to see success, participation and growth. So much so, we have officially outgrown our usual location at the RiverCentre in St. Paul, and will be heading over to the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis for 2017! We’re very excited for this change and feel that will help us better run our event and create a great experience for all of our attendees!
The Secure360 Twin Cities event is excited to welcome Juliette N. Kayyem and Aneesh Chopra as this year’s keynote speakers. Learn more about these speakers and register today here!
Secure360 branched out to two new states
We have had requests for Secure360 to create expansion events in different Midwest locations, so in September, we hit the road. We were in Des Moines, Iowa on September 19 and Brookfield, Wisconsin on September 26. We had a great time networking with new attendees and vendors, and the speakers were a hit. Here is a quick recap of how these events went.
After feedback and much planning, the UMSA board intends to continue the Secure360 event in Wisconsin! Details about the 2017 event, call for speakers and call for sponsors will be active soon, so keep an eye out here. This event will be hosted at the convention center in Milwaukee.
Secure360 announced a student event
In February 2017, UMSA will host its inaugural Student360 event! Student360 is a student-focused event based off of the Secure360 Conference. The event is focused on offering three “track” areas for learning including professional advancement/career sessions, two tech sessions and a career pavilion for recruiting and interviews. Students and professors interested in learning more and registering can find information here.
Student360 is a great way to get involved in shaping upcoming security and risk professionals with demo and recruitment opportunities. Sponsorship opportunities for Student360 are listed here.
