Manage Risk. Build Trust. Embrace Change - 2017 Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit. Security professionals that packed Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, MD, June 12-15 were eager to learn the cutting-edge strategies from industry experts, mingle with Gartner analysts, and share ideas with colleagues.

Here at Continuity Logic, we are always honored to be a part of Gartner events, but this year we couldn’t have asked for a better crowd with whom to share our integrated risk management software.

 

Gartner delivered! New research by Gartner analysts was presented, opportunities to discuss best practices were embraced, and hands-on workshops were introduced during the 2017 Summit.

The keynote was delivered by John Brennan, Former CIA Director (2012-2017). Brennan’s opening focused on security solutions in the rapidly changing world.

Attendees were invited to select sessions from 6 different program tracks for a customized experience at Gartner’s 2017 Security and Risk Management Summit. The tracks included:

  • Chief Information Security Officer
