Leading Security at the Speed of Business

This summit is the flagship of our CISO engagement program, and we have designed it to be an optimal information sharing forum and intimate networking platform for Europe's foremost security leaders.

Security is a deeply technical subject, and there is rarely an opportunity to come together and assess security at a more strategic level. Similarly, we are all running as fast as we can and sometimes we need to create space to examine our own professional perspective and development.

We are inviting a select group of 50–60 security leaders from European organisations, gathered together to engage in challenging debates and leading edge knowledge sharing about developments in the security industry. With panel-based keynote sessions and an exclusively senior audience, the summit will be a unique event in the security calendar.

The IDC research team have built what we believe to be the best group of industry analysts covering the European security market, and we are convinced that this event will provide you and your organisation with unparalleled insights including security in the digital era.

We look forward to seeing you in Ireland!
