Greetings again from day three of our Navigate 2018 conference, focused on empowering our MSP partners with the tools and insights they need to define their path for success in the IT space.
Day two was jam packed with an insightful CEO roundtable, a presentation of Continuum’s product roadmap, celebrity keynote Barbara Corcoran, and much more. To briefly recap all that we covered in the past three days and the fun that we’ve had along the way, take a look at our video below:
Day three opened with a nice presentation and tribute to the Continuum Veterans Foundation. We were joined by local singer and finalist on NBC’s The Voice, Michelle Brooks-Thompson, who sang a beautiful rendition of America’s National Anthem. After that, Michael George took the stage to talk about Continuum Veterans Foundation’s commitment to supporting our veterans and working with Hire Heroes USA to help them find jobs in IT.
Preparing for the Inevitable: Lessons Learned from 30 Years of Managing Crisis and How They Translate to the Cyber Threat
Our final keynote of the conference was given by Ed Davis. Ed is best known for his leadership and service as Boston Police Commissioner, particularly as he led the department through the investigation and aftermath of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.
Throughout his keynote address, Ed talked through his experience with the bombing investigation, and how having a plan in place and being able to make decisions under pressure led to closing the case so quickly.
Ed then went on to share some lessons he has learned from 30 years of managing crisis and how it translates to the cyber threat. Here’s what attendees had to say about one of the nation’s predominant figures in the cyber security space:
