Testimonials – CISO 360 series

“Very Informative and experienced speakers form all different capabilities and sectors which made the forum extremely worthwhile. Great delegates as well to speak to and were clearly very keen on the content especially the TPRM (Third Party Risk Management) space where Mastercard Cyber & Intelligence fitted in. We went to meet and get connected with senior executives from all verticals/Business areas and we achieved that in spades. Our connections in region were built rapidly and our pipeline as a direct result will get larger whilst we build the Risk Recon brand in Middle Eastern region. ”

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.
