CISO, Emerging Executives, and Risk Management Leaders


As an intimate, executive-level event, attendance is reserved for an organization's most senior cybersecurity executive (CISO or CISO equivalent). To enhance multi-disciplinary problem solving throughout the curriculum, we encourage participation from:

  • CIOs
  • CTOs
  • CPOs
  • Risk, Legal, and Operational Executives
  • Technology, privacy and business executives who are risk-focused and cyber conscious


Our "Emerging Executives" initiative supports the next generation of cybersecurity leaders. We highly encourage executives to bring one senior member of their team.
