It's an exciting week at SecureWorld as our Charlotte team heads out the door to help security leaders in the Carolinas put on their 8th annual SecureWorld Charlotte cybersecurity conference.

The Charlotte conference is also the kickoff of the 17 regional SecureWorld conferences around North America. Here is the 2019 schedule for review.

Congratulations to the Advisory Council, which has helped build an incredible agenda. Watch this video for more:

Says the panel moderator, James Kidwell, Director of IT Governance at Novolex:

"How to do it and how to test it [an effective cybersecurity program] involves strategic planning and leadership at the executive level. The practical takeaways from this discussion will be immensely meaningful."
