BREMEN, Germany, January 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The CIO 30 summit presents a rare opportunity to be at the heart of a limited gathering. Combining an intensely researched, content-rich programme with an invitation-only delegation, the CIO 30 summit hones in on the most pressing end-user challenges, providing that quality, high-level insight that is so critical to the business.
The lifecycle of the CIO 30 creates focused conversation between thought leaders, and consists of four main components to ensure maximum productivity: roundtables, workshops and panels, networking and one to one meetings. Working towards common goals ensures that everyone in attendance wants to, and can, leverage extended networking, going beyond the job title and building relationships that last. Pre-determined meetings offer tangible ROI for all attending. End user challenges are matched with the most relevant solutions from the industry's leading-edge providers, while five-star privacy and luxury ensures the very best in business conversation.
Today's most damaging enterprise security attacks are targeted specifically at people, systems, vulnerabilities and data; whilst advanced persistent threats (APTs) are becoming stealthier and more sophisticated than ever. With this in mind, Raimund Genes, CTO for Trend Micro, will be leading a panel at the upcoming summit and discussing how to detect and analyse APTs and targeted attacks, whilst also looking at how to rapidly adapt and respond to these attacks.
Focusing on real-time user generated content surrounding today's most pressing challenges, attendees with be given the unique opportunity to learn from the industry's leading companies and leverage their value proposition with unprecedented insight from the most senior executives. Also scheduled to attend January's summit are: Reinhard Posch, CIO for the Austrian Federal Government; Ryszard Dyszkiewicz, CIO for Vienna Insurance Group; Andreas Ioannou, CIO for Gunvor Trade; Robert Redl, CIO for EVN; and Gordon Tredgold, VP IT for Henkel.
