2011 Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit – According to the Twitterverse


by Josh Arrington

Earlier this week the CyberArk team headed down to Maryland to attend Gartner’s Security & Risk Management Summit and, of course, to eat some crab cakes. With keynote speeches, analyst sessions, roundtable discussions and workshops scheduled, the days were jam packed. While the conference was widely attended by many IT security professionals, those that couldn’t make the trip could still feel like they were there by following along with the #GartnerSecurity hash tag. We decided to take a closer look at the hottest topics that were addressed at the summit through the lens of some of the Tweets that were sent from the show floor. Here are some of our favorites – that discussed some of the show’s hot topics like mobile security, internal and external cyber security threats as well as the consumerization of IT:

@TamirSigal: Caldwell: Info risk is like a grenade, don’t hold it, throw it 2 exec mgmt<-disagree. Everyone needs 2 be held accountable #gartnersecurity

@Jfbauer: Interesting, blocking web sites does not stop data loss nor exposure to malware anymore per Gartner #GartnerSecurity

@CesareGarlati: #GartnerSecurity Ken Dulaney on #Consumerization “in 2015 less than 50% of companies will have up-to-date mobile security plocies”

@Iglazer: Bellamy raises the point that it’s not that people don’t care about privacy, but that they are unaware of 2nd uses of data #gartnersecurity

@Cgonsalves: #GartnerSecurity Chertoff thinks US should start teaching cybersecurity to pre-schoolers. Says it’s like teaching hygiene. I kid you not.

@JTKeating: Wagner: By 2014, 70% of IT teams will be required to present annually on state of security to the Board of Directors. #GartnerSecurity

@reed_on_the_run: Mobility is #2 top security trend at #GartnerSecurity behind threat environment which is always #1

Thank you @TamirSigal, @Jfbauer, @CesareGarlati, @Iglazer, @Cgonsalves, @JTKeating and @reed_on_the_run for the inside look at 2011’s Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit, looking forward to 2012!
