ConnectWise® Announces Automation Nation 2016 Keynote Speaker

TAMPA, Fla., March 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ConnectWise, a company that transforms how technology solution providers successfully build, manage and grow their businesses, today announced that Kevin Mitnick, the world’s most famous hacker, will take the stage as Automation Nation’s keynote speaker on June 22 in Orlando, Fla. Hosted by ConnectWise, Automation Nation is an annual gathering of ConnectWise’s LabTech partners who want to learn from product experts, network with like-minded solutions providers and connect with leading technology vendors.

Mitnick, once one of the FBI’s most wanted because he hacked into 40 major corporations just for the challenge, is now a trusted security consultant to Fortune 500 companies and governments worldwide. The best-selling author’s Automation Nation keynote will include a “live technology magic show” that demonstrates his latest hacking techniques and a moderated question-and-answer session.

“We are very excited for Kevin to share his insights about how companies can easily fall victim to a security breach,” said Brett Cheloff, LabTech General Manager. “Security is a huge concern today for all our partners. Bringing in Kevin as our keynote will help arm them with the information and tools they need to protect their customers.”

Amy Hodge, ConnectWise Senior Director of Community, said registration for Automation Nation is close to maximum capacity and that those who plan on attending should register soon. “In addition to the keynote presentation from Kevin, we have planned more than 60 breakout sessions, a broad range of networking opportunities and a showcase with over 30 state-of-the-art vendors. This year’s gathering is on track to be the best yet,” she said.
