Connecting Minds and Voices: Leveraging Cybersecurity for Trust, Transformation and Resilience

Trusted benchmarking and meaningful interaction for CISOs, cybersecurity practitioners and luminaries

CISO 360 series focused on the canny strategic and practical management of cybersecurity as a resilient business asset. Over 200 CISOs and senior information security practitioners from 25+ countries around the world joined the main fourth chapter of the flagship CISO 360 Congress – Hybrid 2020

CISO 360 Congress again offered the cybersecurity community a highly focused, content-led event and a forum in which to present and assess the latest strategies for managing cybersecurity, from culture to supply chain through to innovation, transformation and the maximisation of value. The programme was designed to provide you with critical updates on the emerging opportunity and risk horizon, role expectations and business technologies within the years to come. We invited CISOs to bring their experience to the discussion in a unique closed-door environment at a time when resilience, collaboration and building bridges in the cybersecurity field is more important than ever. Trusted partnerships and connections are vital, internally as well as with supply chains, stakeholders and customers.

The Pulse CISO 360 series is a leading influential community of C-suite and senior cybersecurity executives. Our mission is to forge a fundamentally better way to connect CISOs/CSOs and the most senior decision makers in business, risk and technology and provide access to the intelligence, knowledge and partners they need to move business agendas forward.

“By far the best event this year that I have attended. I always make the effort to attend CISO 360 as it is not just an event, it is a trusted community that comes together from around the world!” Group CISO MS Amlin

Friday 4 December, 15:00-18:00 GMT

Avatars CISO 360 Roundtable

Followed by: Security Avatars Beach Networking 

Rethinking CISO leadership, culture and behaviours in a distanced world!

  • Led by, with and for CISOs
  • All invited guests invited to contribute to the discussion.
  • The discussion was held under the Chatham House Rule.
  • The talks ended with networking on a virtual beach!
  • Pre-event: You shaped the final agenda by inputting your top 3 current priorities.

The ultimate sound-boarding and benchmarking for today’s CISOs and cybersecurity, cyber threat intelligence leaders, this roundtable discussion was held under The Chatham House Rule. Talks ended with networking on the virtual beach where delegates chatted in private spaces around the island, danced, took speed boats and explored this new avatar world!  Through Avatars, we behaved as we would behave in a physical conference.  

This was about bringing you an innovative collaborative experience that feels safely and strangely familiar. This was about the real people, CISOs leaders, who inhabited the space.  People were surprised at how real it felt, given that the voices are spatial, meaning that as you walk close to someone you can hear one another.


The 5th Annual CISO 360 Congress is booked for 7-9 July 2021 at the VP Plaza Design Hotel in Madrid.

Please save the date! If we cannot host in-person, the event will be digital. Either way it is happening.

Many thanks.
