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.

Supporting Business Agility with Risk-Based Programs

CISOs are tasked with enabling business leaders to make the right decisions and helping the enterprise balance the related risks and benefits. As organizations become more complex, CISOs have an opportunity to transform digital risk management into a competitive advantage.

Evaluating, Communicating and Responding to Evolving Threats

As the threat landscape continues to evolve, CISOs must take a proactive and adaptive approach to protect the organization from outside threats. CISOs continue to innovate and leverage automation to match and exceed the level of sophistication used by bad actors.

Building a Culture of Security to Enable Smart, Secure Decision-Making

With the increased adoption of remote and hybrid work, the cybersecurity mesh continues to expand. Security must be a high-priority for every employee, and CISOs must lead the charge to embed company culture with reliable security practices.
