Membership Criteria

Become a member today.

As we strive to offer the best environment for peer-to-peer sharing by information security executives, the CISO Executive Network periodically reviews our membership and attendance criteria to ensure the highest standards, strong participation, and value to attendees. Simply put, our events succeed when the most senior information security and privacy executives in their respective companies and organizations attend our Executive Member Breakfast Roundtables.

The CISO Executive Network offers complimentary membership for persons that meet these criteria. Members are welcomed to participate in Executive Breakfast Roundtables, Webinars, and have full access to all materials on the website and LinkedIn Discussion Group. In some circumstances, when the Executive Member cannot make it to a roundtable in person, they may elect to have a representative of their team attend on their behalf. We prefer to be notified when that is the case.

Consultants, Vendors, and Value Added Resellers are not qualified for membership. If you fall into one of those categories, you may apply to participate in our events as sponsors only. Find out more about sponsorship here.

If you are unsure which level of membership is appropriate for you, please contact us directly at [email protected].
