2012 Southland Technology Conference (SOTEC) — Oct 26-27 in Long Beach, CA

IT Professionals are presented with multiple conferences throughout the year that provide opportunities to develop industry knowledge, training, skills and leadership. What sets SoTeC apart from most other conferences is that is organized by the same technology professionals who will benefit from attending the conference. Because the conference is organized by non-profit professional associations whose members volunteer their time, and because the speakers are also volunteers, SoTeC can provide these great benefits at a surprisingly affordable price:

  • Cindy McKenzie (SVP Fox Entertainment Group) – From My Desk to Yours—A CIO’s Perspective
  • Paul Tobia (Senior Principal Security Strategist, Symantec) – Strategic Security Overview – trends and directions in information security
