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 24 Chapter cities seven times annually, for a total of 176 Chapter meetings. This includes custom events.
Roundtables take place in 24 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.
How do we visualize, quantify, and report the security risks of our people, systems, apps, third- parties, and data? What reportable metrics show we are effectively managing risk? Risk is the key word we use when talking to the business. Yet the translation of security risk to how it impacts the business has been a constant challenge. Too often, we report things that seem relevant to the business but are ultimately too technical and focus on vulnerability and not risk. We struggle to understand all the risks of our people, systems, apps, and data. We have tried multiple dashboards and risk scoring techniques and we still are struggling to convey security risk the right way.
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.
