a security-student focused event. Secure360 Twin Cities 2019 will be hosted at Mystic Lake Center in the Minneapolis suburb of Prior Lake. As mentioned, Xigent will be in attendance as a sponsor, along with other mainstays in the industry, including our familiar partners like Cisco, Fortinet, and more. "Ultimately, our sponsors are extremely important," said Secure360 Co-chair Alex Crittendon. "Without the sponsors being here this conference couldn't happen."


The conference focuses on the following key focus areas: governance, risk and compliance, information security, physical security, business continuity management, and professional development. "We're not here to push products," Cisco's Sean Reagan said of the event. "We're here to talk about issues and come up with solutions."
