A forum for innovative IT Security thought leaders across the United Kingdom

Despite economic instability in the euro zone amid an on-going global financial crisis, IT spending worldwide is expected to increase in the coming years. But even with enterprises tacking notice of new technologies capable of driving revenue and lowering costs, IT departments aren't yet in the clear. The role of the CISO is more important than ever as financial turmoil continues to alter the world's economy, making it difficult to put your organisation in a position to achieve success. The business goals have changed and CISOs are now tasked with trying to find emerging opportunities to drive value throughout the enterprise.

We're in an historic transition - one marked by challenges, but filled with possibility. Preparing for the upturn and making the right decisions in times of change can better position your enterprise to succeed. Accordingly, the theme of this year's summit is CISOs in Transition - The Shift from Cost-Saver to Value Provider.

The CISO Summit Europe is a unique opportunity for the region's greatest IT thinkers to collaborate on current industry challenges and trends. Attending CISOs and IT executives engage in peer-on-peer networking, whilst discussing the issues currently affecting CISOs from a variety of industries.

Here are a few topics to be discussed:

  • Cloud Computing as a Transformational Business Enabler
  • DBaaS (Database as a Service)
  • Network Functions Virtualisation
  • Big Data - Storing & Protecting Your Most Valuable Assets
  • Securing Your Business for Mobility, Cloud Apps and Social Media

As an IT leader, now is the time to produce real business value for your organisation. We at CDM Media know that in order for you to take time out of the office, it must be time well spent. The CISO Summit UK agenda offers a balanced schedule of focused educational sessions, one-on-one meetings and networking opportunities that will maximise your time and efforts, providing you with ideas and strategies truly capable of changing business practices.
