BRISTOL, England, November 9, 2011 -

The Next Generation Security Summit Europe, which will be held from the 12-14th of December at La Mola, Barcelona, will provide leading executives with the framework to establish strong business relationships, which will see the start of many innovative and exciting new ventures.

The summit will host CIOs and CISOs from companies across Europe meet to discuss objectives such as protecting their business against cybercrime and other security threats and scams. Attendees include leading industry professionals such as Derek Brink, VP and Research Fellow at Aberdeen Group; the CISO at Danone and Group Head Information Security at UBS.

During the two and half days, leading executives will have ample time to benchmark crucial security strategies with peers. Paolo Campobasso, SVP and CSO of Unicredit Group, called the last event “an opportunity which cannot be missed.”

As well as comprehensive workshops, the summit will involve panel discussions offering executives moderated, peer-led working groups on major industry issues. One-to-one meetings will also give delegates the chance to meet with business analysts and solution partners to discuss ongoing change in information security and the impact of disruptive technology.

A total of 15 workshops will cover a range of exciting and pressing issues for the rapidly evolving world of security. Topics included identifying key risk factors, application security trends, best practices for authentication, leveraging social media platforms with minimum risk, and much more.

Oliver Smart, CEO of GDS International - the global business event company behind NG Security - says of the event, “We have always been proud of the quality of our summits, but this years’ Next Generation Security Europe Summit aims to be one of our best yet. We look forward to the thought provoking discussions which will take place in the December meeting.”
