3rd CSO 360 Congress
4-6 December 2019, Kempinski Budapest

Pulse Conferences would like to thank everyone who participated in the 3rd CSO 360 Congress hosted on 4-6 December 2019 at the Kempinski Corvinus in the wonderful city of Budapest.

“The Pulse 360 CSO Congress provided significant value and information in a short timeframe, particularly with regard to tradecraft, best practices, and networking.” Claire Prestwood, Senior Security Intelligence Analyst for the Americas, Cargill

“The CSO 360 Conference was a fantastic opportunity to exchange information and perspectives in a collegial environment.“  Patrick Kane, Senior Director of Security, Atlas Air

Connecting minds on security, resilience, intelligence and investigations priorities to protect people, profits, property and reputation

This trusted, community-based meeting is now an annual fixture in the diaries of Chief Security Officers and directors of intelligence, investigations, resilience and business risk. 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.
  • New for 2019! CSO 360 Roundtable – We have added the Roundtable on Friday morning (6 December)! This is a pure benchmarking discussion held under The Chatham House Rule. No presentations, the attendees set the agenda.
