Another week, another successful Brigantia partner event – or, more precisely, three events. 

We’ve just concluded our Insider Threat Roadshow. This was our mini-tour of three cities, to give vendors and MSP partners a chance to meet, network and discover new ways to protect customers from insider threats.


We started in London at the spectacular Lord’s Cricket Ground. The next day we were in Birmingham, before the final leg in York.


Why insider threat? 

The events had the same speakers and the same purpose. We wanted to highlight the growing need to address insider threat. Ed Knox, our Senior Product Specialist, kicked things off by explaining the theme: insider threat.


Also known as insider risk, insider threat essentially means the risks that insiders can pose (mostly unintentionally) to any organisation’s security posture. Insiders have access to sensitive data, and it’s all too easy to breach.


This is doubly true in the age of cloud services and hybrid work. Information flows across multiple devices, locations, software platforms and networks. Not only does this increase the risk of a breach, but it decreases visibility for organisations.


Threat and opportunity

There is a marked shortfall in organisational awareness of insider threat and ways to manage it. As Ed pointed out, this is a huge opportunity for the channel to educate customers, close vulnerabilities and add recurring revenue streams in the process. 


This is precisely why these events can add value: by showing these opportunities to partners, and giving them the chance to meet our vendors and in-house specialists face to face. Meanwhile, Brigantia Product Specialists were on hand to answer questions, give demos and share their knowledge.


The speakers 

We are extremely selective with vendors, choosing only those who solve a real problem in a user-friendly, MSP-centric and commercially viable way. The excellent quality of the presentations made this abundantly clear. All three events featured the following speakers from our vendor partners: 


  • Next DLP’s Vice President (EMEA), Stefan Jarlegen, on the risks of unintended data loss, and ways of monitoring and managing the internal and external flow of information.
  • Hornetsecurity’s Head of Presales, Matt Fry, on insider risk in relation to Microsoft 365, and ways to mitigate it without compromising productivity.
  • Conceal’s Director of Sales, Mark Ross, on the importance of security at the browser level in the age of cloud services and hybrid work.
  • Sendmarc’s Senior Sales Specialist, Danny Hoogeveen spoke in London, on the rise of DMARC and the critical need to raise standards of domain and mail security. While, Filipe Guedes and Kerry Tomkinson spoke in Birmingham and York respectively on the same topic.

We also opened the floor to other expert speakers to share their insights. In London, Mike Knight of MKLINK gave advice on how to maximise referrals. At the Birmingham and York events, ethical hacker and cybersecurity consultant Joe Burns spoke about session-hijacking attacks. 


Let’s talk partnership

We’d like to thank all attendees for coming, and the speakers for sharing their insights. These events are the perfect showcase of what Brigantia is all about. We bring the best vendors to market, and use our commercial and technical knowledge to maximise benefits to partners.


The ultimate goal is to open new revenue streams to you by protecting your customers. Are you looking for win-win partnerships? Get in touch and let’s talk about how we can help you.
