On 2-4 December 2019, the US edition of our Security Insight Summit will bring together senior decision-makers and business leaders from across North America to discuss current industry challenges and opportunities, how to get the most out of them – and where the emerging threats lie.

Key themes under discussion include: how to get ahead of the security curve with cyber intelligence; the importance of stemming breaches and bolstering defences; and why, with the health of IT infrastructures now business critical, security is now an organisational issue rather than merely an IT one.

From case studies that lift the lid on operations inside best-in-class organisations, to workshops and collaborative sessions that focus on real challenges and future technology innovations, to one-to-one meetings with industry peers offering practical advice tailored to your specific needs, the summit provides you with everything you need to implement your key projects more effectively.

Our Approach

Every GDS Summit has one stated aim: to help attending executives implement their key projects more effectively. We do this by developing an in-depth understanding of those executives' project needs, the business outcomes they want to achieve, and the challenges they face in terms of hitting those goals.

Who Attends

Our summits are designed for executives looking to take their business to the next level – from market-leading brands to disruptive new entrants. As such, we’ve worked with some of the world’s best-loved and most forward-thinking businesses.
