  • Why social engineering dominates among today’s cyber threat actors
  • How remote work and the move to the cloud has changed the nature of threats

2:30pm - 4:00pm CST Virtual Peer-to-Peer Meetings

Peer-to-Peer Meetings

Meet virtually for in-depth conversations with your colleagues

Conducting business virtually makes it more challenging to meet and network with like-minded peers. During this time of disruption and uncertainty, it’s become even more critical to collaborate with peers who are facing the same challenges.

Now, we are bringing you the opportunity to set up 1-to-1 meetings in a private, virtual setting with community peers directly after the Virtual Executive Summit.

  • Peer-to-Peer meetings are 25 minutes in length, giving you the chance for more personal interaction and in-depth conversation with your fellow Dallas CISO Virtual Executive Summit peers.
  • All conversations are private and will not be recorded
  • Meet up to 3 peers based on your shared interests or priorities

Participant Testimonials

  • ‘If I came just for the peer to peer meetings, my time was well spent. This is truly your USP.’ Stuart Hughes, CDIO at Rolls Royce
  • ’The peer to peer mtgs were maybe the BEST part of this mtg’ Edward Wagoner, Executive Director, Digital, JLL
  • ‘Best idea ever; I had such productive sessions with all three of my peers’ Dd Budiharto Sr. Director of Cybersecurity, Baker Hughes
