2nd CSO 360 Congress 2018
Ritz-Carlton – Vienna

Integrated security strategies to protect people, profits, property and leverage global business operations

Pulse Conferences would like to thank all speakers, sponsors and delegates who participated in the 2nd CSO 360 Congress, hosted 5-6 December 2018 in the wonderful city of Vienna.

This community-based event was attended by senior in-house chief security officers, corporate security, resilience, threat management, intelligence and crisis response directors, which truly enabled global peer to peer sharing – we pride ourselves not only on who is on stage but who is in the room!

This event uniquely tackled priority challenges for Chief Security Officers, many of whom oversee diverse areas and teams covering in corporate security, cybersecurity, information security, fraud, physical and executive and travel security, resiliency, forensics and investigations. We offered a progressively integrated and converged security programme.

  • Connect with global security leaders – A new expert international panel of security experts will bring real experiences to pool brain power on the sustainability of global business amidst rapidly evolving threat landscapes and changes in geopolitical, technological and financial spheres.
  • Innovate your security strategy – Partake in this share of strategies, tactics and methods for improving the protection of clients, employees and business partners as well as the security of assets, information and reputation.
  • Leave inspired for action – Exchange practical approaches, innovation and strategies on the emerging threat horizon.
