ChannelPro Announces L.A. Event as DEFEND West: The West Coast’s Premier Cybersecurity Conference

ChannelPro returns to Los Angeles with DEFEND, a two day cybersecurity conference custom-made for MSPs.

FRAMINGHAM, MA — The ChannelPro Network, a trusted source for IT channel community news and events, is proud to announce it will host ChannelPro DEFEND: West on Nov. 12-13 in the greater Los Angeles area. Following the success of the 2023 event and repeated requests from the ChannelPro community, the MSP conference in Southern California will have a cybersecurity focus.

The news marks a notable milestone in the evolution of ChannelPro’s event series, which delivers top-tier, interactive educational experiences for channel professionals. It also will come on the heels of the East Coast version of the same event, held in Islen, NJ, on Aug 7-8.

The transformation of the Los Angeles event into ChannelPro DEFEND: West highlights the importance of addressing the critical security challenges faced by today’s IT professionals. ChannelPro DEFEND: West promises a unique and enriching lineup of cybersecurity-focused discussions, networking opportunities, and expert insights tailored for a West Coast audience.

The IT channel event will feature panel discussions on the convergence of AI and cybersecurity, ways to prevent insider threats, onboarding best practices for cybersecurity clients, ways to capitalize on regulatory compliance requirements, and more. Additionally, a major highlight is a workshop on pitching cybersecurity services designed to equip attendees with the tools to effectively market their offerings.

“With DEFEND West, we are dedicated to empowering the MSP community through high-quality, engaging, and forward-thinking events,” said ChannelPro Founder and Publisher Michael Siggins. “Each session is meticulously designed to offer a blend of knowledge, networking, and growth opportunities, making it a must-attend gathering for anyone in the IT sector.”

For IT professionals looking to gain insights, share experiences, and explore new opportunities, this L.A. cybersecurity show will be a must-attend event in 2024. Because space is limited, MSPs, MSSPs, VARs, IT consultants, and other IT channel professionals are strongly encouraged to register and attend.
