Online

Join Volta + Software Secured on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 at 12:00pm ADT for How Do Your Security Decisions Impact Your Enterprise Sales Deal About this event When: Wednesday, June 8, 2022, 2022 from 12:00pm - 1:00pm AST Where: Virtual via Zoom ( log in details will be included in your Eventbrite confirmation email) Description: Enterprise customers are demanding more security requirements from their vendors than ever before. When digital demand skyrocketed with the onset of the pandemic, the risk of serious cyberattacks soared as hackers infiltrated more large-sized company networks through targeting clients or partners. As you can imagine, your security decisions now have huge implications on the likelihood of closing enterprise deals. Join us for a discussion on what enterprises look for when vetting possible tech vendors and the best practices to start implementing so that you stand out against your competition. We’ll also introduce you to vendor security questionnaires: the tool that most enterprises use to weed out their most secure tech vendors from the most risky.
