With the Acronis Global Cyber Summit officially in the history books our team, along with more than 1,000 registrants – including cybersecurity experts, CIOs, IT pros, MSPs, value-added resellers, and ISVs and developers – are back at work spreading the cyber protection revolution we began in Miami.
If you weren’t able to make it to the Summit this year, here’s a quick look back at our highlights.

Insightful panel discussions
The Acronis Global Cyber Summit also featured four unique educational tracks for distinct types of organizations within the IT industry.

Networking and community-building receptions
In addition to all of the knowledge sharing at the Summit, our team took part in a number of wonderful networking opportunities, an inspiring Women in Tech Breakfast, and the Acronis Cyber Foundation’s Charity Reception benefiting the Foundation’s Schools Initiative. At this event, donors generously gave more than $30,000 to the non-profit – enough to fully fund the construction of a new school in Guatemala. In response, the Acronis team committed to funding two additional schools in the coming years.
