Network at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2023

Engage in person with the top security and risk management leaders, Gartner experts and industry-leading solution providers.

Networking at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit isn’t just about meeting new people. It’s about candid conversations with world-class security and risk management leaders from various backgrounds, organization sizes and industries. It’s diving into what’s working — and what isn’t — with your peers in facilitated small-group discussions. It’s discovering new technologies at the Exhibit Showcase, engaging in meaningful discussions in a roundtable session or getting tailored guidance during a one-on-one with a Gartner expert.

With three days and access to more than 2,600 security and risk management leaders, you have ample opportunities to make lasting connections.
