While You’re There

Check out our introductory video that’s playing in the Lobby for a tour of the platform. The Virtual Cyber Security Summits have the following major components:

-General Sessions: This is where our education sessions are held, as well as our Live Q&A, Keynote and CISO Panel sessions take place. Your time spent in these sessions are what will qualify for CPE credit.
-Solutions Showcase: Click through the booths listed in the Solutions Showcase to see which of our vendor partners are joining us at the Summit, and click on the booths to interact with each of the teams.
-Lounge: Here is where you go for networking, polls and to check out the leaderboard. Chat with your fellow Cybersecurity pros in the local area.

Tech Tip: If the video isn’t coming through or is “frozen” — hit refresh.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Will the sessions be available on demand?
Yes! All sessions are available on-demand within 24 hours of the closing session. From there, you can access them through the Engagez platform for 2 weeks following the Summit. Please note that CPE Credits are not available for those who attend on demand.

Can I Get CPE For Virtual Events?
Yes. Through our virtual platform, we’re able to calculate the number of minutes you’re spending in each of the General Sessions. We then add them and include the total in your certificate of attendance, which you can use for claiming your CPE credits. The certificate includes your name and date of the conference, and it can easily be printed or emailed to claim credit through your organization.

How Do I Get My Certificate?
On the day after the virtual event, keep an eye on your email. Data Connectors will send you a link to claim your CPE credit (as well as links to all of the Summit’s presentations on-demand). Follow the CPE link under “Certificate of Attendance,” and enter the email address you used to log in to the virtual platform. From there, you can download your certificate.

What Counts Toward CPE Credit?
Only time spent actively engaged in the General Sessions (that includes speaker presentations, Q&A panels, CISO panels and keynote addresses) is included in your total time in attendance. Time spent on breaks or in the Solutions Showcase is not included in your total time. You will not receive a certificate if you spend less than 10 minutes engaged in the sessions or if you attend on-demand

The website says, “Email Not Found” — what does this mean?
First, ensure that you’ve entered the same email address you used to access the virtual platform. Next, keep in mind that CPE credits are only given for time spent in the General Sessions, for time spent greater than 10 minutes.

I’m getting emails from vendors after the summit. Did I sign up for that?
Keeping our Virtual Summits free for attendees requires the support of vendor partner organizations, who may wish to contact you after the Summit. Affiliates and partners are required to understand the registration terms and privacy policy.

By signing up for the summit and visiting and engaging in the solutions showcase, you’ve opted into communications with our affiliates and partners. If for any reason you’d like to opt-out of those communications in future Summits, please email [email protected] For any additional details on this, please review our privacy policy.

Too much email? Your community membership is the most important thing. You can use this link, to Opt-out of our partner and affiliate marketing. At the same time we will make sure you stay in touch with Data Connectors, to learn about future educational events.

How do I get an immediate response from your team?
You can chat with our tech support team directly on the platform, or email [email protected]

Can I post about the Summit on social media?
