Agenda

The Leading Event for IT Security Specialists

Instead of putting out fires responding to each and every threat, senior executives want information security and risk management to become more predictable and manageable. With a host of unknown unknowns, anticipating the future is challenging.

The Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit takes a comprehensive look at the information security and risk discipline including: network and infrastructure security, identity/access management, compliance, privacy, fraud, business continuity management, and resilience.

Comprehensive Tracks and Sessions

The summit features four complete programs on Security, Risk Management, Business Continuity Management, and CISO roles. Each program offers a full track of analyst sessions, keynotes, roundtable discussions, case studies, workshops, and more. Build a custom agenda across all four, or attend sessions in a single program.

The majority of the agenda is made up of Gartner analyst sessions — research-driven presentations that focus on the issues that matter most in IT today. Leveraging the latest research collected from organizations worldwide, analyst sessions provide real-world information that will help you make better decisions and drive more successful initiatives.

Our Agenda will feature comprehensive tracks to drill down on your hottest topics, with track sessions tagged to help you create a customized agenda based on your role, experience level and key focus.

    Hot topics to be covered:
    • Mobile Applications & Security
    • Bring your own device (BYOD)
    • Governance Risk and Compliance
    • Cloud Computing and Security
    • Data Loss Prevention

Special Sessions

In addition to our comprehensive tracks, our Agenda also features several special sessions providing opportunities to learn from and interact with Gartner analysts, industry experts and peers, and top solution providers:

  • Keynote Sessions

    Typically presented by non-Gartner industry leaders, these plenary sessions are designed to be entertaining and thought-provoking.

  • Workshops

    Presented by Gartner or guest experts, these intimate workshops provide an opportunity to drill down on specific "how to" topics in an extended, small group environment. Sessions designed for end users only. Registration required.

  • End-User Case Studies

    Gartner invites a number of end users to personally present leading-edge case studies and answer questions.

  • Analyst One-on-Ones

    Sit privately for 30 minutes with a Gartner analyst specializing in the topic you'd like to discuss. Many attendees tell us that a one-on-one session is worth the price of admission, all by itself.

  • Analyst-User Roundtables

    Hear how your colleagues from various industries tackle problems similar to yours. These small group discussions provide an informal setting for you and your peers to share insight, challenges and concerns on today's hottest topics.
