American Trucking Associations’ Technology and Maintenance Council will be hosting a new event called the Fleet Data Management and Cybersecurity Conference, addressing best practices in fleet data management and cybersecurity.

The conference will guide attendees how to extract more business value from the data that fleets collect to make cost reporting and operations more efficient. The conference will also focus on leveraging TMC’s Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards as well as new breakdown maintenance benchmarking services available through a joint project with FleetNet America.

TMC’s Fleet Data Management and Cybersecurity Conference registration is now open, and the event will be co-located with the National Accounting and Finance Council’s Annual Conference. The two adjoining conferences will be held June 5-7 in Raleigh, N.C., and will include two joint sessions.

“These two conferences will place attendees at the cutting edge of cyber tech and finance and equip them with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate and lead in a business environment that is constantly changing,” said Chris Spear, ATA president and chief executive officer.

The Fleet Data Management and Cybersecurity Conference will bring together fleets, manufacturers, software providers, and OEMs to address a wide range of prominent issues, including VMRS, software procurement and cybersecurity best practices.

Registration is also open for the NAFC conference, which will cover trucking business topics such as the impact of tax reform on fleets and risk management to emerging trends like blockchain and the latest developments in mergers and acquisitions.  All NAFC participants will have the opportunity to earn up to nine Continuing Professional Education credits.

“The worlds of trucking and technology are merging more than ever before,” said Robert Braswell, executive director of TMC.  “We are very excited about this new conference, which will deliver value to our members as they prepare and build cyber and data strategies.”
