Budapest, Hungary

Pulse Conferences is delighted to announce that the 3rd CSO 360 Congress will be hosted on 4-5 December 2019 in the wonderful city of Budapest.

This trusted, community-based meeting is now an annual fixture in the diaries of Chief Security Officers and senior security practitioners. It enables truly global peer to peer sharing. We pride ourselves not only on who is on stage but who is in the room to bolster stimulating discussion and to share practical use cases on security challenges, successes, strategies and intelligence on the emerging threat landscape.

CSO 360 Congress tackles priority challenges for Chief Security Officers, most 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.  Held under The Chatham House Rule, the programme offers a silo-busting, integrated and converged security focus to reflect the backdrop of increasing levels of global volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.

  • 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.

Hear directly what speakers, sponsors and delegates thought.   

Pulse Conferences would like to thank all speakers, sponsors and delegates who participated in the 2nd CSO 360 Congress, hosted in December 2018 in Vienna. See Archives here.
