IBM Security E-Summit was a drive started with an objective to increase new accounts for IBM security portfolio (MaaS360 & QRadar). The drive was strategically targeted at enterprise level organizations, and focused on audience profile similar to Head – IT, DGM – IT, Chief Office – IT, CISO, CIO, CTO, IT Security Officer, GM – IT and Digital teams.

As a part of the drive, various enterprise organizations were identified and invited to attend to E-summit with invitations being sent via E-mail blasts and Tele-calling. By capturing RSVP data, the interested people were identified and their attendance was confirmed by calling.

The E-Summit was hosted on a neutral platform where the customers met and interacted virtually with a host of IBM experts.
