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 more about the latest features of industry-leading solutions and hear from IT security experts on the latest trends in our industry.

At Alacrinet, we host exclusive events like this Whiskey Cigars & 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. We would love to meet you in person if you are able to so we thought we'd create a unique in person and virtual happy hour combines Whiskey tasting and IT security.

During the happy hour, you'll hear from leaders in cybersecurity discuss the latest trends and product features that address top IT security challenges. But since this isn't your average webinar, you'll meet a Whiskey and Cigar Pro and hear about their process, get tasting notes, and be able to ask questions about the Whiskey or Cigars during the call.
