Urban Wine Tasting with Arctic Wolf

At Advantage Technology, we’ve found that leaders are really having a difficult time with cybersecurity. The topic is difficult, so webinars and presentations just don’t cut through the complexity.

So on August 25th, we booked a wine tasting at Stone House Urban Winery in Hagerstown and invited Arctic Wolf Networks, an industry leader in cybersecurity, to join us. There we met casually, enjoying some wine and answering questions.
