Rome, Italy

Connecting minds to build global resilience and trust in cybersecurity

From 19-21 June 2019, CISO leaders from around the world will unite in this trusted space to benchmark progress and challenges on cybersecurity priorities in the wonderful city of Rome for the 3rd CISO 360 Congress. This event follows recent successes in Barcelona, Dubai, Lisbon, Abu Dhabi and Barcelona.

The programme is held strictly under The Chatham House Rule and is designed to enhance interaction and facilitate discussion around the key challenges and critical topics confronting CISOs and leaders in technology and business. CISOs and senior executives share openly in this closed door  environment to benchmark CISO to CISO on the emerging opportunities and risk horizon, role expectations and business technologies within the years to come, as well as to learn from perspectives beyond the security spheres.

  • 2.5 action-packed days, attendees will be presented with a range of keynote addresses, topical debates, practical use corporate case studies, deep-dive industry focuses, think tanks on emerging priority areas, accumulating in the CISO 360 Roundtable.
  • 45+ speakers from around the world, specifically chosen for the differences they will bring to the table, with a brief to offer deep insights into what good security looks like, what is the new expectation.
  • 360 perspective for CISOs – a journey beyond the security echo chamber to expose the audience to the views of business and risk leaders, innovators and investors – in addition to the valuable CISO to CISO benchmarking!
  • Trusted partner ratio – we are inviting a limited number of reputable providers to the security industry, who have agreed not to talk product and who we know will add genuine value to the discussions in Rome. Everyone is integrated, numbers are closely ratioed to maintain the balance. After all, we are all part of the same problem and solution!
  • Only one Rule – CISO 360 Congress is held under The Chatham House Rule is defined as follows: “When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.”  No press is in attendance.
  • Pulse Innovate Report written by a Pulse professional Editor will be shared after the event to capture the key points (unattributed) from key sessions and discussions that take place.
