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.

Improve and Achieve Operational Resilience

In the wake of mounting geopolitical crises and a constantly changing landscape, organizations are reassessing their operational resilience. Cybersecurity strategy plays a key role in achieving true resilience and CISOs are using this opportunity to help strengthen business capabilities

Enable AI’s Potential through Trust, Risk and Security Management

Ensuring AI is deployed securely, managed effectively and embedded into the product lifecycle requires an effective framework and organizational buy-in. Organizations that initiate and sustain AI trust, risk and security will see better accuracy, outcomes and performance

Create Alignment with the Enterprise to Unlock True Value

CISOs understand the need to enable the enterprise while also protecting it. While misalignments between cybersecurity and the organization persist, CISOs are shifting mindsets to a minimum effective approach to unlock value

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming in-person gathering
