Information Security Summit

Managing risk and securing information: your contribution to the success of your organization!

We are living in challenging times. Money is tight, and cyber-risks are increasing. As an information security or risk professional, you have a special contribution to make to the success of your organization. Traditional emphasis has been on effectiveness in preventing security breaches and incidents, but the focus is increasingly turning toward the efficiency with which this can be achieved. It might sound like alchemy, but you have an important duty to simultaneously improve security, while reducing costs.

This year's Gartner Information Security Summit emphasizes the role of the individual practitioner, which is becoming increasingly specialized. What should you be doing, and what are the best practices of your peers? The event will provide the information and networking opportunities to help you do your job better.

What's New at the Gartner Information Security Summit?

Practical, Actionable Know-How

In the present climate, your value relies not on who you are but on what you can deliver effectively. This year's agenda features five presentations telling you the "how-to" approaches for effective programs in IAM, DLP, GRC, vulnerability management and your overall security structure.

Rising Compliance Issues

The agenda deals directly with incoming regulatory requirements such as Solvency II, IFRS and SEPA, including cross-border issues and gives an exclusive analysis of how you should go about preparing for other compliance challenges.

Frameworks for the Organization

This year's agenda features a demonstration of ITILv3 for security, a real-world case study of ISO27001/ISO27005 in action and the implementation of a risk management framework.

Advanced Practitioner Insight and Professional Development

Take your organization and your own career to the next level...Let Gartner help you with everything from a full self-assessment workshop, our maturity benchmark session showing global organizational standards and how to advance up the chain, an advanced workshop on risk management and a Gartner guide to how you can make best use of security qualifications and accreditation for your CV.
