Summit Workshops

The MTUG board works to select workshops that feature "end-user" IT professionals (tech staff working for non-tech-sales companies), presenting their own experiences with specific technologies or IT/security management challenges.

MTUG accepts workshop ideas accepted ALL YEAR LONG! Planning for the next season begins in June (Proposals not accepted for the IT Summit will be automatically considered in this planning). You may use the Summit RFP form below to submit a proposal for next season (just ignore the deadlines)

Keynote Speaker


Ravi Srinivasan, Forcepoint's VP of Solutions & Platform
"Mitigating Business Risks in Today’s Evolving Security Landscape"

Organizations are maturing their security programs to protect users and data in a highly distributed digital world. This session will focus on the emerging challenges to reduce the business risk and secure environments that you don’t own or fully manage, running services that you did not develop, and collaborating with more people, entrusting them with your business data. This session will also cover effective strategies for risk-adaptive protection across network, cloud, data and workforce.

Join MTUG in welcoming Ravi Srinivasan from Forcepoint! Ravi brings fascinating experiences in behavior modeling to the security discussion, including a background in teaching IBM's Watson the "language of security."
