EVENT RECAP: Vantage Minneapolis

Vantage Thank You

The Vantage Minneapolis event on June 3, 2015 brought in over 120 local Minneapolis solution providers, Ingram Micro   associates, and Manufacturer representative attendees to the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Minneapolis. With the event theme of “Improve Your Vantage Point – how to prepare for the new IT”, Ingram Micro’s objective was to improve our customers’ vantage points by helping solution providers and manufacturer partners build their businesses and be more   profitable by developing 3 key areas:

1) Understand today’s market challenges and offer relevant solutions

2) Identify and bring new market opportunities to our partners

3) Enable our partners to focus on their core businesses and leverage our vast capabilities

One of the main highlights of the day’s agenda was the Keynote Address from Michael Rogers, Practical Futurist, who recently completed two years as futurist-in-residence for The New York Times and is a columnist for NBC.com. He is also a best-selling novelist whose fiction explores the human impact of technology. He shared great insight on the future of technology and where it’s taking us.

Trend Micro Launches – Targeted Attack: The Game!

The Fugle

“Do you have what it takes to manage a targeted attack?”http://targetedattacks.trendmicro.com/ #TrendMicro

Trend Micro recently released a great new way to understand targeted attacks and how they impact organizations – “Targeted Attack: The Game!

It’s a simulation that lets users play the role of CIO of a tech startup called The Fugle. A targeted attack is detected, and it’s the player’s job to make the right decisions as the attack unfolds. Choose well, and The Fugle survives. Choose badly, and, well, let’s just say things don’t go so well!

Play the game to learn and provide you insight into the challenges organizations face when an attack hits their networks, and what is required to respond.
