Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit

14 – 15 February 2022 | Middle East | Virtual

Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit is going virtual

After careful consideration, Gartner has made the decision to deliver this conference virtually. The well-being and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, and associates remain our top priority, and at this time the virtual conference will provide the best opportunity to learn, engage, and be inspired.

Enabling Innovation: Secure the Future. Manage Risk. Build Resiliency.

Recent global events have shown that innovation is essential for enterprises to survive and flourish. But accelerating digital innovation brings new complexity and risk.

As a security and risk management leader, you can enable your enterprise to embrace the technologies of tomorrow, today — and do it in the safest possible manner. You can help your colleagues understand the risks inherent in digital initiatives so that they can realize the benefits of innovation securely. And you play a key role in making sure that security resilience is built-in from the start. 


Lead digital business success by using digital design practices and defy conventional thinking during times of uncertainty to emerge as a winner.


Start with culture change when embarking on digital transformation, instead of waiting to address it later. Join us to recognize the value of customer, citizen and employee experience in the business value proposition for digital business success.


Create information and technology operating models that are agile, responsive and innovative. Learn how to exploit the combined forces of data, analytics and artificial intelligence to deliver business value in and beyond the enterprise.

In this time of extraordinary turmoil, it’s even more important to come together as a community. We look forward to welcoming you to the virtual Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit! Together, we’ll explore the latest Gartner insights and recommendations, exchange new ideas and best practices, and help one another to be resilient in the new normal.
