Meeting the Security Needs of the Midmarket

Security ranks as the number one concern of midmarket IT leaders, according to our semi-annual survey conducted at Midsize Enterprise Summit. Midmarket IT leaders, tasked with securing their organizations, attend MES: IT Security looking for strong partnerships with tech suppliers and solution providers to help them effectively combat internal and external threats. 

Build the Ultimate IT Security Strategy

Take a Holistic Approach to Your Security Plans

Understand the "Human Factor" of Security

Mitigate the Damage of Security Breaches

Evaluate Your Options and Prioritize Your Security Initiatives

 

Mission Possible: IT Security Best Practices For The Midmarket

The IT professionals charged with leading their organization’s IT security strategy know they will never have enough budget or staff to ward off the biggest threats to their data assets. Given the heightened state of alert, business leaders think they may need the latest security technology in order to protect the company’s network and assets from sophisticated attacks. However, what IT security leaders really need to do is go back to basics and put into place security best practices that not only minimize business risk, but enable business success. For those professionals who must now demonstrate accountability to the Board and senior leaders, they need a practical IT security playbook that focuses not only the fundamentals, but also the right mix of partners and tech suppliers.

What Our Midmarket Executives Say

This summit was the best conference I've been to in a long while...I was able to find information that would have normally taken 6 months of web searching.  The best part was it put me face-to-face with the vendors I wanted to hear from and it wasn't all a sales ploy...”
      
― Michael Grosse, CTO, Sullivan University System
 I have never been to an event that offered such great networking as well as group feedback on current products and trends. I would highly recommend MES events to anyone that is thinking about going.” 
 
― Dane Holman, IT Director, McGowan & Co.
"MES University was a great opportunity to hear from security professionals on actionable steps that I can bring back to my team to implement. Great job!"
 
IT Group Leader, Landscape Forms, Inc.
MES provides me with exposure to technology solutions that I would not otherwise have access to or may have considered. I get a chance to validate strategy with my peers while learning about their challenges and approaches.
 
 Brian Celardo, IT Director, Birch Family Services
At first, I wasn't sure if my company and my situation would translate well to MES. Once I started networking with my peers at the summit, I found many others in almost identical business situations and facing the same issues I deal with - getting proper IT budget, how to efficiently manage a small IT workforce - and exchanging knowledge with them was invaluable..”
