ConnectWise, provider of intelligent software and expert services for technology solution providers (TSPs), has announced new educational offerings, including IT Nation Secure, a two-day virtual conference focused on cybersecurity for TSPs and new ConnectWise Certify Advanced playbook and courses. These new offerings are designed to provide TSPs and managed service providers (MSPs) with the knowledge and skills they need to build a security practice and improve their security posture for their clients.
ConnectWise will hold its first IT Nation Secure conference on October 14-15, aligned with Cybersecurity Awareness Month. This cybersecurity conference will aim to help TSPs reduce risk, transform their cybersecurity business, and streamline the service delivery of cybersecurity solutions. The virtual conference is open to everyone but is tailored for individuals at TSPs whose jobs are essential to offering and delivering secure services to their clients.
The new ConnectWise Certify Advanced courses are a 12-month program of information sharing, engagement and security business building for TSPs. This is the second playbook and set of associated courses in the ConnectWise Certify cybersecurity training series. The Advanced offering, scheduled to begin in late September of 2020, focuses on the security journey for improvement overall and specifically improves delivering, monitoring and managing risk across the TSPs operations and services.
“We’ve had more than 4,000 individuals complete the ConnectWise Certify Fundamentals class, making it clear there’s a huge need and appetite for more of this training. We’re committed to providing it and we’re excited to offer the next installment of courses in our Certify training program,” said Jason Magee, CEO, ConnectWise. “And, based on the overwhelming success of ConnectWise Certify, we decided to expand our IT Nation conference line-up by adding IT Nation Secure, a comprehensive conference dedicated to security education to help arm the IT Nation with the knowledge and expertise they need to better protect their SMB customers.”
