Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit

21 – 22 June 2022 | Sydney, Australia

Accelerating the Evolution of Security: Reframe and Simplify

Enterprises are accelerating their adoption of digitalization and agile methodologies, dramatically changing their risk profiles. As a consequence, many organizations continue to add layers of defense, which in turn increases the complexity of defending against the continued onslaught of more and more advanced attacks. You must evolve your security strategy by reframing your current thinking and simplifying your processes, organization and defenses.

Join Gartner experts and your peers at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2022 to share valuable insights into key strategic imperatives, such as establishing an agile security program; fostering a human-centric, security-conscious culture; devolving risk ownership; and establishing a new simplified Cybersecurity Mesh Architecture. It will enable you to safeguard your organization, defend against your attackers and deliver business value.

Leadership and strategy

Advance your leadership skills and learn how to develop a security strategy for agility and resilience in uncertain times.

Technology

Unlock the potential of new and emerging technologies, and meet the providers changing the security and risk landscape.

Critical insights

Explore the latest trends in cloud security, privacy, threat management, infrastructure protection, application security, cybersecurity mesh and more.

Cybersecurity is constantly evolving, but with it comes more complexity, which possibly gives malicious actors the advantage. At Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit, you will hear from top Gartner experts on the best way to evolve your security strategy by reframing and simplifying your defenses to be ready for current and future attacks.
