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.

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?

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