    Hot topics to be covered:
    • Application, Network & Infrastructure Security
    • Planning for IoT Security
    • Digital Business Security & Risk Management
    • Organizational Resilience through BCM
    • Risk Management and Compliance

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.
