As 2020 changes the way we live and work, cyber criminals are adapting as well. Join us as we examine the biggest challenges security leaders face, and why a people-centric approach to security is everyone’s biggest opportunity to stop attackers and protect their organization.

Join Lucia Milica as she and a panel of CISOs discuss:

  • 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
  • The ways their organizations are building controls to better understand and protect people

11:00am - 12:00pm PST Virtual Summit Boardroom

The Sprawling Endpoint — IAM, BYOD and More

For large swaths of 2020, work would grind to a halt without the ability for employees to remotely access critical systems and information. With business’s survival on the line, many CISOs must set a strategy that securely enables the future of remote work.

Join this virtual boardroom to discuss:

  • Finding the balance between security controls and a rapid pivot to digital business

  • Effective security awareness training for a remote workforce

  • Common pitfalls in securing large numbers of remote users

12:45pm - 1:15pm PST Networking

Community Discussion

An informal and interactive opportunity for you to network with peers in small groups. 

2:30pm - 4:00pm PST 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 Southern California 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
