Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit

In today’s risk reality, you have to anticipate new cybersecurity threats, deal with disruptive technologies and build resilience in a world where anything seems possible.

The virtual Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2021 is the one place you can hear independent experts on what matters most now and how to prepare for what’s ahead. You’ll learn how to create the security and IT risk management plans you need to give your organisation the freedom to grow and innovate with confidence.

Join your security and risk peers to update and improve your cybersecurity and risk management strategy. Gain the insights, inspiration and information you need to deal with whatever the new decade brings your way.

Lead digital business success by using secure and risk-based digital design practices, and establish your organisation as a trusted participant in digital platforms, people, partners, services and things.

Start with culture change when embarking on digital transformation, instead of waiting to address it later. Join us to gain valuable insights on establishing an effective, risk-based cybersecurity program.

Create information and technology operating models that are agile, resilient, responsive and innovative. Enable your organisation to understand the risks and seize the benefits of our increasingly changeable, digital world.
