Agenda


Coming Soon

The CISO Executive Summit agendas are driven by the mission-critical priorities identified among the community. Each agenda is uniquely crafted ‘by CISOs, for CISOs,’ and will be available closer to the gathering. All topics and sessions will be inspired by the following themes.

Advancing the Business Value of Security

Security leaders are transitioning their communication strategies to better align their mission with business priorities. CISOs must connect security investments and initiatives to business drivers and understand how to capture and articulate their value.

Protecting Critical Infrastructure Against Advanced Attacks

CISOs are investing in understanding the expansion of their organization’s attack surface and refining their approach to protect their internal and external assets. In 2023, security leaders continue to innovate and leverage automation to match and exceed the level of sophistication used by bad actors.

Investing in Company Culture to Attract Talent and Empower Staff

In 2023, CISOs are looking to evolve their talent strategy to offer more flexibility and autonomy to their workforce in order to reduce turnover and secure essential talent. An agile culture and human-centric work design will be key in empowering employees while growing the skills needed to advance the digital enterprise.
