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 meetings in each of our 22 Chapter cities six times annually, for a total of 154 Chapter meetings. Since the onset of COVID-19, we have seen great success hosting these meetings virtually via Zoom.
Roundtables take place in 22 Chapter cities across the country, from our Mid-Atlantic chapter in Washington, D.C. to our Bay Area chapter in Palo Alto. In this era of COVID-19, we meet in these cities virtually via Zoom.
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 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 six annual roundtable series, we offer webinars from both well-established and emerging vendors. These webinars often tie in to the preceding or upcoming series and always offer the opportunity for our CISOs to learn about new solutions and earn CPEs.
For years now, users of our systems and data have not been solely employees and contractors. The business has extended nearly all internal systems to our customers and third parties. We have little or no control of how they get in, as the business wants access to frictionless and always-on. With the recent pandemic, work-from-home has become the new work standard requiring remote access entirely. Attackers are well aware and have put significant effort into exploits that target the user, the devices they use, and the software employed to interact with applications. Knowing that the user is often the weakest link in our security defense, how do you develop solutions that secure systems and data while making the user experience as “frictionless” as possible? The industry has responded with controls in the spaces of Identity and Access Management, User and Entity Behavior Analytics, Awareness, Email Security, Micro-segmentation, and Endpoint Security, to name a few.
CISO Executive Network is a peer-to-peer professional organization serving information security, IT risk management, privacy, and compliance executives from large enterprises, including corporations, healthcare systems, universities, and utilities. Formed in 2005 as CSO Breakfast Club, the organization now reaches members across the United States and in a number of foreign countries.
CISO Executive Network brings peers together for regularly scheduled in-person and virtual meetings. It provides a forum for industry sponsors to bring thought leadership to the Network members through interactive presentations at various events, from the organization's well-regarded breakfast roundtables to regional and special events.
The Network's content program provides members with secure access to presentation materials from all events, special content programs from sponsors, and the organization's unique regularly published newsletters and videos.
