"IDS Fast Forward was a great event for myself and my team. We saw a lot of great, engaging speakers on a variety of very relevant IT topics. We were able to speak with multiple vendors about their products and services and came away from the event with several new ideas to help us deliver world class services to our customers.”

Brian PalmerDirector of Infrastructure, American Hotel Register Company

"I really enjoyed attending IDS Fast Forward this year. The speakers were very insightful and provided great perspectives that I found to be very educational. From Michael Davis’ talk on Hacker Tactics to Mr. Moneyball himself talking about Big Data, it was definitely time well spent.”

Jim VanekArea Manager, Data Protection Solutions, EMC

“IDS Fast Forward delivered leading edge cloud, mobile, and big data insight. The speakers reminded us that, above all else, security and prevention go hand in hand. A former U.S. Navy Seal and current expert in privacy and security confirmed that an organization’s weakest security links are its people, their mobile devices, and social media.”

Jon BeyerExecutive for IT, ELCA

"I very much enjoyed the IDS Fast Forward event. All the speakers were absolutely relevant on cloud, security and big data trends. Michael Davis was correct…privacy is a commodity—something everyone should be watching closely.”

Michael FordDirector of Cloud Operations, University of Chicago
