Raytheon | Websense is now Forcepoint and you are invited to share in the experience

If you are a cyber security specialist seeking the latest solutions, this event is a must-attend!

If you are a CIO, CISO, IT security director, head of IT infrastructure, IT security officer, data protection officer, security architect or IT manager, you are welcome to register now for this free-to-attend information sharing and networking session, from 8:30am to 12pm, on 1 March in Cape Town and 3 March in Johannesburg.

This will be followed by a lunch, where you can catch up with your peers and colleagues, as well as discuss matters in more depth with the keynote speakers: Jon Hamlet, regional manager, Forcepoint; and Neil Thacker, information security and strategy officer, Forcepoint EMEA.

Find out how to safeguard your users, data and networks against the most determined adversaries, from accidental or malicious insider threats to outside attackers, across the entire threat life cycle. Learn more about how Forcepoint can protect data everywhere – in the cloud, on the road, in the office – simplifying compliance and enabling better decision-making to streamline security.

By invitation only – exclusively for Forcepoint partners

If you are a reseller then the afternoon session is where you need to be. As of 14 January 2016, Raytheon|Websense became Forcepoint and now sells the portfolio of products that were once sold by Websense, Raytheon Cyber Products, Stonesoft and Sidewinder (previously owned by Intel Security).

This ground-breaking joint venture was created to address the constantly evolving cyber challenges your clients are faced with on a day-to-day basis.

Forcepoint would like to invite you to a free-to-attend afternoon with them to find out more about the:

  • Forcepoint brand, go-to-market strategy and vision
  • Market landscape, business drivers, threat landscape;
  • Channel programme, compliance, training, deal registration; and
  • Spend time discussing your queries, requirements and concerns with Jon Hamlet, regional manager, Forcepoint, and Neil Thacker, information security and strategy officer, Forcepoint EMEA.

This will be followed by a cocktail party, giving you more "informal" time to liaise with the specialists and meet with your colleagues and peers in the infosec world. Find out about their current challenges and discuss solutions to these at this event.
