Digital Fight CLub is now a TV show! Join us for the live filming of Episode 1 – Digital Fight Club: Cybersecurity 2024 back at the birthplace of DFC — the historic Granada Theater. 

Corporate CIOs and CISOs from around the country gave us challenging cybersecurity issues and we’re having top VAR/MSSP execs duke it out on stage in a raucous debate with an audience of cyber pros voting for a winner.

Tired of hearing the same ‘ol same ‘ol at cybersecurity conferences? Tired of being kissed up to or not being able to speak your mind in a proposal?

So are we.

Only 40 CISOs, 40 VARs/MSSPs, 10 Vendors and their teams may attend. Everyone gets to vote for the winners. No pressure.

Mayhem, indeed!
