This April, Katalyst hosted their third annual Security Summit and it proved to be extremely successful! Customers were invited to stay the week at the beautiful Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
Keeping the conversations relaxed but collaborative on this three day, two night trip is key. We had some amazing speakers who talked on the subject of security, and our attendees got to choose from an array of activities including golfing, fishing, shooting, kayaking, or spending time at the spa.
Katalyst Business Development Manager, Jessica Morin, stated, “The Katalyst Security Summit was definitely top notch! I was amazed by how the Katalyst customers were so receptive, not only with all the fun activities provided, but by engaging in all the seminars. It just goes to show you that the Katalyst team really listens to what customers say. It was an amazing event and I look forward to Katalyst one-upping it for next year!”
We were fortunate enough to host Mr. Frank W. Abagnale, one of the world’s most respected authorities on fraud and the man behind the movie Catch Me if You Can. He spoke on protecting yourself against identity theft and captivated the audience with his unique story and take on life.
Jesse White, Katalyst Account Manager, said, “This year’s summit was stuffed with the right balance of novelty and innovation, yet, connected with a diverse audience on such an intimate level. Our speakers’ ability to deliver a difficult subject matter, in a way that captivated your emotions, was matchless."
Our other speakers included, FBI Special Agent, Jim Granozio, who spoke on organized crime, public corruption and cyber crime matters, Evan Taylor, who serves as a Risk Consultant with NFP, Devon Ackerman, who is an authority on matters involving digital forensic science, cybercrime and related incident response, and Wendy Perrell, a wellness coach based out of Charleston who spoke at our first ever spouses brunch.
The bar was set pretty high on this year’s event, so it’s back to the drawing board for the Marketing Team as they begin planning for next year!
