KuppingerCole´s Information Risk & Security Summit (IRS) is a highly interactive event offering the opportunity to you as an IT professional to discuss with your peers about your most challenging topics and questions in a discrete environment – moderated by teams of practitioners and analysts. IRS is a dialog based event, not a speaker – delegate event. It consists of a series of 5 dialogs around 5 highly relevant topics – learn from your peers, share your thoughts and get feedback on your views.


Information Risk & Security Summit 2013 is built around these 5 interactive Dialog Sessions:

  1. Extended Enterprise – the new Scope of Information Security. How to Deal with the Challenges of the Computing Troika – Cloud, Mobile and Social Computing
  2. How Mature is Your Cloud? Defining your own Benchmark on Cloud Maturity, Measuring and Enforcing it.
  3. Identity Information Quality – Foundation for reliable Access Control. How to Handle this in the Decade of the Identity Explosion, with Social Logins, BYOI (Bring Your Own Identity) etc.?
  4. 10 Good Arguments to Invest in Information Security from a Legal Perspective
  5. Assessing your Information Security Infrastructure and Understanding your Biggest Risks
