Gartner, Inc. has combined three of its most popular security-focused conferences into one new four-program summit -- the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit, scheduled for June 21-23, 2010 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, MD.
Four complete programs within the Summit will drill down on Security, Risk Management and Compliance, Business Continuity Management, and chief information security officer (CISO) roles to deliver detailed, role-specific content and networking. Each program offers a full agenda of analyst sessions, keynotes, round-table discussions, case studies, workshops and more. The programs will cover today's hottest topics in security and risk management, from network and infrastructure security to cloud computing, security as a service, sourcing, compliance, e-discovery, privacy, and identity and access management.
The new event has been restructured to feature four concurrent programs over three days:
-- CISO: strategic and managerial vs. tactical; professional development (includes Invitational Program)
-- IT Security: security technology, privacy and protection tools
-- Risk Management and Compliance: governance, risk and compliance
-- Business Continuity: disaster recovery, 24/7 availability
Keynotes include:
*John Ashcroft, Attorney General of the United States, 2001-2005: IT Security: Striking a Balance Between Access, Privacy and Usability
*Andrew Zolli, Executive Director, Pop!Tech, Author of Resilience, Expert in Global Foresight & Innovation: Why Things Bounce Back: Engineering Resilience Into Your Organization
