BlackBerry Summit 2023, Agenda Unveiled

BlackBerry has unveiled the agenda for its biggest event of the year, BlackBerry Summit, which will reunite the global BlackBerry community — live and in-person — on Oct. 17, 2023, in New York. The new and expanded event centers on the critical role of “trust” to unlock the potential of the digital world.

Agenda Details

Last week we announced the agenda for the breakout sessions, covering all the topics that are most important to leaders in the IoT, IT, and Cybersecurity. Here is a sneak peek:

  • Enterprise-Grade AI Is Here 
    The business value of artificial intelligence is clear — the security implications for organizations are not. This session will provide you with a guide to today’s enterprise-grade AI and evolving generative AI capabilities, from the pioneer of AI cybersecurity. 
  • The “Godfather” of UEM
    Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) software has become essential to every organization, to enable secure remote access to corporate networks and data from endpoints of every description. Find out from the pioneer of UEM – BlackBerry – how UEM can deliver both security and a frictionless user experience, without compromise.
  • Introducing Trust in IoT Embedded Systems 
    Trust is the building block for creating an enterprise-grade IoT ecosystem. This session will showcase technology that empowers developers to create embedded systems that combine security, scale, privacy, and performance. 

  • Zero Trust: Beyond the Buzzword 
    Zero trust “hype” has excited thousands of marketing teams around the world. Go beyond the buzzwords to uncover legitimate zero trust security architecture that can elevate your approach to identity authentication and perimeter-less network security. 

  • Convergence of IT, OT, and IoT 
    For the digital world to realize its potential as an interconnected ecosystem, the convergence of cybersecurity, the IoT, and OT (operational technology) is critical. Discover what this conjunction of technologies means for you, and why McKinsey & Co. named BlackBerry as one of the few companies that can effectively “marry” IT cybersecurity with the Internet of Things and operational platforms.
