The IoT Security Services Association is a community of IT channel partners connecting industry security experts and vendors with IT service providers.

Warranty Master CEO Dan Wensley and 20-year channel chief and IoTSSA content director Brian Sherman opened the event, followed by an introduction of the event sponsors.

Presentations include CompTIA’s latest IoT research, plus 2019 security predictions and how it impacts SMBs’ and IT solution providers’ businesses; the dark web and dispelling ransomware myths; and ConnectWise’s discussion on recalibrated cyber security and the SMB.
