The Waldorf, London


“The session Talk to the Board was a rich discussion with two interesting themes emerging for myself. The primary ask from the Board is for them
champion the importance of Cyber security and employee Cyber vigilance across the organisation as a cultural norm. To secure this commitment the audience noted the value of having a standing agenda item on the Board annual agenda. The panel also encouraged the audience to craft carefully any presentation to the Board to focus on what outcome they were asking for and to avoid just an information update. Both the audience and panel found the event very interesting and informative.” Jeremy Schwartz, Former CEO, The Body Shop, Pandora and Conival plc, Current Chairman Sustainability and Inclusion Practice, Kantar; Advisor Business, Transformation, McKinsey

“The afternoon discussion with the Board focused on a number of key themes, how to build trust with Board members, what priorities a Board cares most about and how to sustain the conversation as a rolling programme. Such diverse Board representation from Audit, Tech, Sustainability, Risk, Marketing, People and Change meant the participants could fully engage in debate across a range of challenging topics”
Deborah Exell, Former Board Member, Head of Human Capital & Business Transformation, Getronics

“First class organisation and presentations. I would highly recommend Pulse conferences for those Senior Managers who need to get value from their time and attendance and for the quality of guest speakersRay Jackson, CISO, Telrock Systems Ltd

““It’s a great event with some high-calibre attendees, and the turnout has been impressive. The one-to-ones provide a superb opportunity to spend some focused time with key customers. And it was brilliant to have one of our teams hosting one for the roundtables around CISO practical tips. It’s a unique in that it is a closed community. You get more one-on-one time than you would do at another conference.” Remco Postma, Sales Leader, SailPoint

““The day has been great. I enjoyed a lot of good conversations. I’ve spent time with interesting companies and interesting people. Pulse always uses thrilling venues, and the Science Museum in London is special. What’s unique is that CISOs can talk to the board – they have opinions and they want to share them, and also listen to the guidance offered.” Scott Daly, Commercial Manager, HUMAN

“It is hard to describe what an amazing experience it was to attend, in person, a conference after such a long time. From impeccable and reassuring preconference comms to a beautiful indoor and outdoor setting, excellent speakers and audience engagement, surprisingly unobtrusive vendors where productive conversations were held, without all the sales hype. It will certainly be a conference I will not forget and setting a standard with which, I will hold other conferences to.”
Deborah Saffer, Global Deputy CISO, Cushman & Wakefield 

“Where else can you find a higher quality of security leaders all in one place?”Owanate Bestman, Director, Bestman Solutions 

“Insights & experience shared by Industry leaders will definitely help me & my organization in course correcting the strategy” Manish Dave, Lafargeholcim

“Amazing opportunity to share experiences and to learn in a very nice environment, CISO 360 is a great experience.

For me it has been a great experience and pleasure to attend the CISO 360.” Europe Industries- Security Officer, Air Liquide GMS

The team always do a great job of providing excellent content, great networking, valuable introductions and useful sponsors. The must attend event for a senior information security leader.” CISO, Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC

“The Talk to the Board session provided a wonderful opportunity for CISOs to hear first-hand how and where they might tailor their Board interaction more strategically to achieve greater impact at this level. By doing so, board members could be better served as CISOs educate and update them about evolving organizational cyber security risk exposures and vulnerabilities. More intriguing, perhaps, was that CISO’s were urged to also see risks as potential opportunities that, with careful due diligence, might be thoughtfully exploited.”
Graham Joscelyne, Former Auditor General, World Bank and Chair: Audit and Ethics Committee, The Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Current Advisory Committee for Internal Oversight, United Nations (UNRWA)

“The emerging consensus from Talk to the Board was how challenging it is for CISOs to present cyber risk to the board in an intelligible way for non-technical people. The challenge for the board is then to understand that and take action. Having a plan prioritising, getting the basics right, not trying to do everything or running off in different directions demands some follow through, both by boards and CISOs. It’s great to have board and CISO side of the equation together at this event. It shows the maturity of the board-CISO relationship that we’re having much better conversations about this now than we were 10 years ago.Robert Hannigan, Chairman, BlueVoyant. Former Director, GCHQ

““As ever, an excellent oipportunity to have time infront of executives who are likely to be very similar to the executives that all CISOs are likely to have to bring on side. It gave fascinating insights, and some I will certainly be using in the future.Julia Harris, Information Security Assurance and Compliance Director, Flight Centre Travel Ltd

““I’ve had a few good sessions with various organisations. Looking at what’s going on across the industry and how organisations are doing things slightly differently has been very interesting. The need for greater collaboration is a key message. It is a fantastic event, and the venue at the Science Museum is the perfect size: I’ve had a breadth of conversations, but it’s small enough to have one-to-one discussions.” Andrew Kelly, Principal Consultant, QinetiQ

“It was a fantastic day. It is great to be back in London and meeting people again. Pulse events are always absolutely amazing. As usual it was such a diverse group of people from so many different departments – finance, manufacturing and so on – and they are all at a certain level where you start to understand strategy and where the industry is going in the UK. I probably learnt more than the people I spoke with, so it’s been brilliant.” Paul Baird, UK Chief Technology Security Officer, Qualys

“Pulse always delivers the very best events so the fact that this event was impeccably organised wasn’t a surprise. But the fact they delivered such an excellent event at this time with the various rule changes and restrictions placed on them was truly surprising. The team showed great strength of character and the ability to innovate. It was a super event and fun too.”
Jonathan Armstrong, CEO, Cordery

This was complimented with case studies from selected top tier partners and organisations to provoke further debate and discussion during the talks or later during one to one networking conversations. The presentations; case studies; and strategy sessions were practical and relevant because they were born out real world security challenges faced by Global CISOs across multiple sectors. I found the open knowledge sharing; networking; and presentations were very valuable to either validate existing approaches or provoke fresh ideas by getting a different perspective.”
