Due to the current global situation, IDC have taken the decision to make the CISO Summit that is taking place on 16-17th November a virtual summit. This decision was taken as the safety of our sponsors, delegates and staff is paramount, and our communities health should be placed above all else.

The summit is designed as an information-sharing forum and an intimate networking platform for a selected group of 100+ CISOs coming from the top 500 companies and largest enterprises in Europe.  Every delegate will leave the summit enriched — whether it be with new lead projects for partners, or innovative and forward-looking security solutions. 

Led by Duncan Browb, VP for IDC in Europe, the summit will also include analysts from across the world who are all keen to speak to you based on your company’s approach to customer service, innovation and technology. Visionary and high impact keynote speakers together with our Summit Advisory Board will drive discussions to provides essential guidance to those who allocate resources as part of efforts to shrink their organization's attack surface, reduce security and privacy risk, and develop efficiencies in their security technologies and strategy.
