FRANKFURT, Germany, June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
On the 1st to the 3rd of October 2012, the Dolce Bad Nauheim hotel, in Frankfurt, Germany, will host a landmark event in the security industry as leading executives from the largest companies convene for the highly anticipated third GDS International Next Generation Security Summit in Europe: http://www.ngsecurityeu.com
This year's programme combines high-level roundtable discussions with next generation technology solutions that have been carefully selected to address core challenges faced by decision makers in the sector. Executives in attendance will be given the opportunity to network and participate in a variety of comprehensive workshops and peer-led panel discussions that will cover a range of key industry issues: cyber security, mobile security, cloud security, and network security are but a few of the topics scheduled for discussion at October's event.
Included within this summit's senior delegation are David Currie, VP Information Security at VISA Europe; Frank Wagner, Corporate Information Security for Merck; Herve Dubillot, CISO at Danone Group; Petri Kuivala, CISO for Nokia; Tim Claes, Group CISO for Atlas Copco; Steve Durbin, Global VP at the Information Security Forum; and Michel Juvin, Group CISO for Lafarge. In addition to a world-class delegation, there will be a lively mix of established sponsors attending the event, including CSC, Symantec, InfoWatch, Fox Technologies and Paladion.
Simon Riggs, Former Global Head of IT Security for Thomson Reuters attended last year's event, and had this to say: "I've always been hugely sceptical about this sort of event previously, I thought it would be tedious and excessively vendor centric. How wrong was I! These were a great two and a half days of networking, insight and interest - all in a stunning location. Time very well spent."
GDS International Summits are carefully structured to provide the perfect environment for new business relationships to flourish. Attendees are given the rare opportunity to personally network with their peers and participate in granular-level discussions, peer-led workshops, and vibrant roundtables to identify investment hot spots for the coming year.
Charmaine Baker, NG Security Delegate Manager for GDS International, says "This event brings together CISOs, CIOs, VPs and a dynamic mix of vendors from across the European security sector. Executives will be given the opportunity to discuss the latest challenges and trends being faced by companies today, and ultimately dissect the industry as a whole. Attendees initially shape the programme by addressing these key issues, which they will then integrate into the event."
She continues: "I'm really excited about the tremendous level of thought that is going into shaping this year's programme. The superior content combined with such an established delegation guarantees that this year's summit will surpass all that have gone before, and really set the standard within the industry."
