We just wrapped Navigate 2019 EMEA in Milton Keynes, UK yesterday and the first word that comes to mind is: success! The feedback says it all—check out #nav19 on Twitter and the Continuum Events app for social proof. All in all, attendees learned a lot from content-rich breakout sessions, keynotes and one-on-one consulting. The insights were cutting edge and the event's energy inspired next-level leadership and business growth.
Here are various aspects of the conference that helped generate the electricity!
Michael George Shared Data to Help MSPs Swim, Not Sink
Continuum CEO's keynote, Sink or Swim: Automation, Cyber Security and the New Era of Managed IT Services, was packed with SMB cyber security data hot off the press to emphasize the real risk and opportunity for MSPs looking to offer the "right" security solution today. Check out Continuum's new research report for more—in the meantime, here are some standout statistics from Michael's presentation.
55% of European SMBs feel helpless to defend themselves from new forms of cyber attacks.
Nearly 70% of SMBs reported having already suffered at least one cyber attack.
81% of SMBs would consider legal action against their provider in the event of an attack.
79% of SMBs plan to invest more in cyber security in the next 12 months.
If 25% of your managed service comes from security, you will get a 1.8 multiple of revenue.
EMEA Experienced the SOC Simulator and Grow Your Business Hub for the First Time
You already knew the SOC Simulator and Grow Your Business Hub at Navigate 2019 EMEA were set to soar. Well, the results are in: they landed. Jay Ryerse walked attendees through how to mitigate a cyber attack, and the Continuum staff spend time consulting MSPs on how to perfect their inbound marketing techniques and effectively go-to-market with security and drive sales. Here are some photos and feedback from these two highlights!
