Acronis Cyberfit Summit

We Went To The Acronis #CyberFit Summit!

The Acronis #CyberFit Summit happens every year, and is a chance for Managed Service Providers and IT leaders from around the world to meet and learn. The massive production includes keynotes, expert panels and hands-on workshops. It helps provide insights and understanding into what high end cybersecurity looks like in the modern age. 

So it was extremely exciting to be invited to the #CyberFit Summit, and for Peter to also be asked to be on the APAC Partner Advisory Council!

We’ve been working with Acronis as their Brisbane partners and have attained Gold Service Provider status. It’s been a rewarding journey bringing their unique brand of cyber security to Australia. Our Founders and Directors Peter and Lauren readily packed their bags and turned on their VPN’s for another journey.  This time to Miami, Florida in the US of A!

What Happened at the #CyberFit Summit

The four day event was held at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. Well attended by global leaders in the MSP field, the action-packed schedule was an opportunity to learn, grow and network with industry professionals determined to stay ahead of cyber security threats. 

As well as a keynote address from Acronis CEO Patrick Pulvermueller, two guest speakers gave keynote addresses, These were the Former FBI Director Judge Louis Freeh, and none other than basketball legend Magic Johnson. They joined a host of other MSP luminaries, sports stars and progressive business minds in presenting on a wide range of topics, from innovation to cloud transformation, cyber women, cyber security and everything in between. 

Peter and Lauren had a great time meeting managed IT professionals at the summit, as well as bumping into some sporting legends (who wouldn’t get excited about meeting Steve McManaman!) It was a rewarding, eye-opening and fulfilling time that made us proud to be associated with this world-leading company.

Thanks Acronis for putting on such an amazing summit! Here are a few snapshots from the event. See you next year!
