Our CISOs are talking.It's time you join the conversation.
The CISO Executive Network is a peer-to-peer organization
dedicated to helping information security, IT risk management,
privacy, and compliance executives be more successful.
Our CISO members are top security executives within their companies and organizations. A majority come from Fortune 2000+ organizations and healthcare and educational institutions. Read more about membership criteria on our Member page.
We host roundtables in each of our 28 Chapter cities seven times annually, for a total of 196 Chapter roundtables.
Roundtables take place in 28 Chapter cities across the country, from our Mid-Atlantic chapter in Washington, D.C. to our Bay Area chapter in Palo Alto.
Our CISOs are eager to consistently engage with their peers during our boardroom style events, hear thought leadership presentations from top cybersecurity vendors, and earn CPE credits. We see an average of 12-16+ CISOs per meeting across our 22 Chapters.
We allow a maximum of three cybersecurity vendors to sponsor each roundtable. Sponsors have the opportunity to listen-in during our CISOs’ candid conversations, give a 15 minute thought leadership presentation, and follow up with every CISO registered
In between our seven annual roundtable series, we offer custom events from both well-established and emerging vendors.
Members in the network span the spectrum of security operations from fully in-house to fully outsourced and everything in between. Shortages in the talent pool make it more difficult to fully staff secops roles. And yet members thirst for more visibility and a common “single pane of glass” to take action from. The only answer seems to be more automation and moving from a reactive to a proactive approach to security operations. In this series we will hear members and industry experts share their experiences and best practices around ways to mature traditional security operations processes, implement new ones to keep staff engaged, and move security operations from reactive to proactive.
