Details: In these challenging times when money is tight and cyber-risks are increasing, information-security and risk professionals have an important duty to simultaneously improve security, while reducing costs. This year's Gartner Information Security Summit emphasises the role of the increasingly specialised individual practitioner.

Over two days, the Summit gathers 13 leading Gartner analysts who will provide practical and actionable know-how to establish effective programmes in identity & access management, data-loss prevention, vulnerability management and organisations' overall security structure. In addition, they will share best practices to help the individual practitioner lead a successful information-security and risk-management team. The Summit features more than 60 sessions including Gartner keynotes, guest keynotes, end-user case studies, and a series of workshops and panel sessions over four insightful tracks:
