Exclusive Executive Forum focused on Information Security Leadership and Strategy
A chief information security officer (CISO) is a senior-level executive who wears many hats in the realm of cybersecurity—but is primarily responsible for translating complex business problems into effective information security controls.
Discussing key topics such as the disconnect between the priorities of the board, CIO and CISO, the impact of AI and automation and political, social and economic disruption, CISO Event gives you the opportunity to meet leading decision makers under one roof at one time, to be part of the discussions that are shaping the future of security and to network and develop contacts that will strengthen your business.
The CISO Event brings together leaders from across the public, large enterprises & mid-market sectors. The CISO event will provide you with a strategic and practical toolkit to help drive transformation including:
The role of the CISO has matured and grown over the years. The CISO has a broader role than just to eliminate the threat. It’s also to deal with the crisis and the residual consequences. As CEOs and board directors adjust their thinking about cybersecurity, the executive to whom the CISO reports makes a world of difference.
With an increasing pace of change and adoption of new technologies such as the Internet of Things, new platforms on which we deploy including public cloud, and new ways and places of working, brought about by the transitional and evolving nature of businesses, security visibility becomes ever-more critical, yet more challenging.
Gaining a clear understanding of IT infrastructure, hosts and critical applications, vulnerabilities to which they may be susceptible and the ability to demonstrate compliance against regulatory and organisational mandates is a task made more difficult by the transitional nature of business and underlying technologies. In this session, we look at some of those challenges and the changing response to adapt and regain visibility in order to respond timely to critical events such as Wannacry, and wide-ranging initiatives such as GDPR.
The growing number of IoT connected devices is undoubtedly beneficial to the way that people carry out everyday tasks, both personally and professionally. But it also brings with it more risk, as the increase in connected devices gives hackers and cyber criminals more entry points. In this discussion we will explore how the Internet of Things (IoT) emerges at a time when threats to our data and systems have never been greater.
In this session Ian will cover the softer skills needed from your security team in order to cater for the wider business and how to get your all stakeholders on board with your cyber security strategy
This was our first experience with Global Business Events and first impressions are important. I was impressed by the level of seniority at the event. The venue worked well, the size of the event was good for networking and the 1−2−1 business
meetings were strong. Well done and I look forward to the next event’.

The CIO Event is a truly global event with international perspectives on current IT trends. These include the usual Social, Mobile, Cloud, Security, 'Internet of Things', Big Data/Analytics, Etc. It's somewhat unique in its format in that it provides keynotes, one-to-one meetings, workshops and open areas for discussions. Its strength also lies in the networking of its attendees both at the events and between times through social media environments such as LinkedIn.- Mal Postings - Global CTO - Quintiles
