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.
Is our layered defense model effectively identifying and stopping threats? What is the right balance of threat defense and threat offense? What reportable metrics show you have a implemented a successful Threat Management program? For the longest time, security programs focused on closing vulnerabilities only. Knowing more about the threat, combined with vulnerability data, helps us focus on the right security defenses. Successful information security programs are adopting military-like tactics largely because the attackers are waging cyber-warfare. Knowledge of your attacker’s plans and tactics is key to preparedness and effective defense. Incorporating threat intelligence into your security program operations is no longer a luxury but essential. Technology advancements have made it possible to incorporate cyber threat intelligence into many of our security solutions. In some cases, this intelligence permits automated response. Using that threat data is key to responding faster and more effectively.
