IDC CISO Summit The 2023 CISO Playbook: Driving Trust through Cyber Resilience and Digital Sovereignty

In-Person Event | Montreux | November 13 - November 15, 2022

General Information


November 13-15


IDC’s European CISO Summit 2022 will be held in Switzerland in November, this will build on the success of our Digital edition in 2021 with a physical event to bring together security leaders to share experiences, learn new techniques and upgrade their strategies to exploit the latest innovative and advanced security techniques and mindset change to help raise levels of resilience and digital trust.

There are three main themes that businesses are looking at with care and attention: Trust, Security and Data Sovereignty​. Trust has become a key aspect for businesses to measure and part of this involved security and privacy. The role of the CISO has evolved to becoming the Guardian of a Company's Trust metric​. Resiliency is a vital component for being able to withstand disruption, which comes from all directions (pandemic, supply shortage, inflation, extreme weather, massive scale cyber attacks)​.

Data sovereignty is important especially in Europe with local and EU regulations, and there is an evolving discussion around digital sovereignty​. These three themes impact vendor security portfolio and approaches having a material impact on the commercial and structural evolution of platforms, products and services; with for example Security-as-a-Service. 360-degree security has become a necessity with multi-layered approached offering the best protection.

In terms of specific areas, IDC identifies identity, MSS, OT/IT convergence, Security-as-a-Service, Zero Trust, and Cloud security as key pillars underpinning a comprehensive strategy. There is also growing attention to measuring and reducing risk and creating trustworthiness measurements for supply chains partners and third parties. We expect new European legislation around third party security and risk auditing.
