Cryptzone Activities Planned for CSUN 2016

March 17, 2016 |

The Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference (CSUN Conference) is next week in San Diego from March 21-25, 2016. CSUN is always much anticipated by the accessibility community, offering an inclusive setting for researchers, practitioners, exhibitors, end users, speakers and other participants to share knowledge and best practices in the field of assistive technology.

If you’re headed to the event next week, we invite you to stop by the Cryptzone Booth #414. Learn how Compliance Sheriff not only serves as compliance software for standard accessibility requirements, including Section 508 and WCAG 2.0, but also how it automatically opens the enterprise to the full range of public access.
