The deadline for registering to attend The Isle of Man Tech Summit will be this Friday 16th October. The cyber security event hosted by Wi-Manx has so far received 250 registrations from business representatives across the island.
With EY acting as title sponsors of the event, the Summit will bring together industry expert speakers, business leaders and technology professionals for a breakthrough inaugural event that has been designed to boost the adoption of best of breed technologies on the Isle of Man. Highlighting the wealth of advanced technologies that are available on island for businesses to consume, the overarching theme of the event is enhancing operational risk management and those attending the event will leave equipped with the knowledge and experience required to protect against internal threats, external threats and business down time while hearing the latest on the taxation of the digital economy.
Kate Hegarty, Director at Wi-Manx said of the response so far:
“We’ve been really overwhelmed with the positive response to the Summit so far. We’ve seen a range of registrations from IT Directors to C Level business representatives and I think this is a strong sign of the demand for this kind of event. It also echoes a key message we want to portray – no matter your position within the business, the information gained from the Summit will benefit all decision makers due to the wide scope of topics that will be covered.
We’re looking at tax, we’re looking at the cloud and as we recently announced, Tony Rowan the CTO from Exclusive Networks will be holding a seminar that will look at the security implications of workforce mobilisation. Today’s workforce is more mobile than ever before and with this comes more room for exploitation and threats. These areas we’ll be talking about affect all island businesses so if you’re interested to learn more about how you can protect yourself from the evolving threat landscape, I’d encourage you to register to attend the event before the deadline.”
