What to Expect

The cybersecurity landscape is ever-changing and staying on top of the latest solutions and features is critical. We invite you to join this virtual event to learn first hand how companies like yours are leveraging cloud security solutions to enhance IT Security.

At Alacrinet, we host exclusive events like this Virtual Happy Hour and Cybersecurity Summit to help keep you informed of the latest trends in IT security as well as get to know you and your security goals. Ideally, we'd be able to meet in person but for now we thought we'd create a unique virtual Happy Hour that combines a virtual tasting and IT security.

During the Happy Hour, you'll not only hear from Alacrinet and security experts,  you'll hear from Duckhorn Vineyards as a sommelier leads us through a wine tasting.


  • Welcome & Introduction
  • Introduction to Duckhorn
  • Strengthening endpoint security with BigFix
  • ‎Closing security gaps with IBM
  • Disrupting the means to prevent the end: A guide to ransomware prevention and detection
  • Q&A
  • Discussion with Duckhorn Vineyards

Once you register (below), we will ship you a three half-bottles from Duckhorn to enjoy during the event.
