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.
In 2021 our members told us that IAM controls are CRITICAL to their security architectures moving forward. As companies digitally transform and push all of their applications and data out to both employees and customers, stronger validation of WHO is accessing those apps and data becomes our core security control point. Verifying not just the identity of the user but also of the device is becoming common. Attackers continue to be adept at getting credentials and making their way onto our systems. Once access is achieved our adversaries can move laterally to get to the most valuable data and assets. In this series we will dive into the latest and greatest methods of using identity and access controls to manage risks more effectively.
