Below are a few Gartner IAM Summit experiences you won’t want to miss.

1. Lunch & Learn

This event is for chief information security officers (CISOs), chief technology officers (CTOs), chief information officers (CIOs) or anyone who answers to them. Do you know everything you need to know about cloud-based identity and access management? If not, come and enjoy a delicious lunch while you learn the “6 Things Every CISO Should Know About IDaaS.”

Our Lunch & Learn takes place on Tuesday, Nov. 29, from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the Octavius 7 room.

2. Free 30-Minute IAM Services Consultation

There is no better place or time to get answers to your IAM questions than at the Gartner IAM Summit. Catching a moment of an expert’s time, however, can be a challenge. Luckily, IBM is offering free 30-minute consultations with leading experts in the field.

Ready to reserve a time for your private consultation? Stop by the IBM Security booth No. 301 anytime from Tuesday, Nov. 29 to Thursday, Dec. 1.

3. Must-Attend Solution Provider Session

Join this lively discussion with IAM experts who will answer two seemingly simple questions about your users: Who are they and what are they doing? The theme guiding this discussion will be “Security Starts With People.” Topics covered will include IAM security expertise, actionable intelligence and emerging technologies.

You can attend this session at the Gartner IAM Summit on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 3:15 p.m. in the August III room.

4. The Most-Coveted Swag Bag at the Gartner IAM Summit 2016

Who needs one more stress ball? Flimsy sunglasses, anyone? Pass on those cheap trinkets and run to the IBM Security booth, where the first 100 people to fill in the blank below will get a free IDaaS Success Kit:

IBM Cloud Identity Service can reduce your IAM costs up to ____ percent. Need a hint? Watch this short Cloud IAM video for the answer.
