Valley IT executives to share knowledge and experience working in the ever-changing IT industry
LAS VEGAS – As technology continues to redefine business, geographic regions, and create borderless digital environments, it has become essential for IT executives to stay aware of global trends in order to integrate strategies into their operations.
To that end, on Tuesday, September 10, 2019, the Society of Information Management (SIM) Las Vegas will host the Nevada IT Symposium, the region’s premier event for the IT executive community, at Mandalay Bay Events Center at 3950 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nev. The single-day event will give IT executives the opportunity to network, collaborate and knowledge-transfer through peer-led keynotes, breakouts, panels, and networking sessions. The Nevada IT Symposium is an exclusive executive-level event geared Chief Information Officers and their direct management teams to stay agile while maintaining companies’ competitive edge.
The day will consist of four keynote presentations and 12 breakout sessions with Vegas Golden Knights President and Chief Operating Officer Kerry Bubolz as the opening keynote speaker. Bubolz is entering his third season with the Golden Knights after leading the organization to a tremendously successful first campaign. Under Bubolz’s leadership, the organization achieved sponsorship revenue 20 percent higher than the forecasted goals for the 2017-2018 season and ranked in the top tier among NHL teams in terms of per-game gate revenue.
The second keynote speaker, Scott Augenbaum, is a retired Supervisory Special Agent for the FBI. After joining the FBI in 1988 as a support employee, Scott Augenbaum became a Special Agent in 1994 where he worked domestic terrorism, white-collar and hates crimes, and all computer crime investigations. In January 2018, he retired from the FBI and now shares his knowledge base to provide a unique training experience. Scott has responded to hundreds of data breaches and will share with the audience commonalities in almost all incidents and provide several takeaways to prevent organizations from becoming the next cybercrime victim.
The afternoon keynote speaker will be Oakland Raiders Vice President Information Technology Matt Pasco. Mr. Pasco will share his knowledge in network architecture design, network device management, server infrastructure (physical and Virtual) and desktop team management.
SIM Las Vegas will present this event to bring together thought leaders who share experiences and rich intellectual capital and explore future IT direction along with sponsors Dark Trace, Rimini Street, Dyntek, cStor, Link Technologies, Veeam, Sumo Logic and Varonis.
