On 21-23 May 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.
I can see ways of doing things that might increase the speed of our delivery maybe by as much as three months.
The content in our workshops was not only in line with what we were looking at but also made us think of some things that we hadn’t thought of yet. I certainly feel better equipped. I have a strong feeling that we can move forward in a lot of areas we’ve been struggling with.
The mix of workshops, roundtables and qualified vendor meetings was just right. The organisation by GDS was first class. If GDS ran the UK’s train companies then the trains would always be on time. Excellent hosting and direction by GDS. A high quality selection of delegates, speakers and sponsors.
It’s different from other conferences; I felt that I was listened to and the priorities for meetings were based on what I need and what I will need in the future.
I feel much better equipped now to go back and complete some of our strategic planning work. I think the vendors catered the conversations to our needs and not necessarily to what they were trying to sell.
It’s good to have the opportunity to ‘look behind’ the company logo and hear what the real challenges are and how much we all have in common.
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.
