Thank you to everyone who participated in the 6th CISO 360 Congress, hosted 6-8 July 2022 at Hotel President Wilson, Geneva.

Cybersecurity Leadership and Resilience Strategies

 CISO & DPO, 360 Treasury Systems AG, Germany    
“One of the few must-not-miss events for every CISO. Wonderful opportunity to learn new things, and have in-depth discussions on what really matters, with real practitioners and industry legends (still alive!).”

CISO, DPO and Director of Internal Controls, Comissão do Mercado de Valores Mobiliários, Portugal
“Great venue, great speakers, well-chosen themes. Overall, one of the best cybersecurity conferences I ever attended.“

Information Security Manager – Awareness and Behavioural Change, Metro Bank plc, UK
“It was a wonderful event.  So good to start to be able to talk to people face to face and to be able to think outside of the “day-to-day responsibilities” box again.”

Add 7th CISO 360 Congress – 5-7 July 2023 to your calendar

On 6-8 July, against the stunning backdrop of Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva, the President Wilson Hotel in Geneva played host to strategic conversations with some of the most knowledgeable personalities in the cybersecurity industry from all over the world. Created and hosted by Pulse Conferences, the 6th CISO 360 Congress – Geneva 2022 brought together CISOs and international cybersecurity leaders – from practitioners to luminaries –to compare and share how they are leading teams and driving their businesses forward, as well as their visions for the future.

CISO 360 – Geneva 2022 follows recent successes in Barcelona, Lisbon, Rome and Windsor. View highlights and video testimonials here from the previous CISO 360 Congress, hosted in Windsor last year and see what 2022 holds –

Through keynote lightning talks, case uses, panels, think tanks, fireside chats and during the evening networking receptions, dinners, and a boat cruise, we got to know and challenge ideas. We heard what plans CISOs are making, what drives them and where their journeys are heading. We benchmarked cybersecurity strategies, tactics and tools with peers and we experienced unrivalled learning and engagement.  The journeys, predictions and game-changers spanned cloud computing, cyber in geopolitics, supply chain, detection, response and recovery, human security and culture, privacy, IoT, AI, SOC – plus breaking cybersecurity news – during this two and half day interactive programme.

  • Connect, innovate and leave inspired. Sit with peers who you know are largely facing a similar set of risks and opportunities
  • Benchmark in a trusted space with fellow CISOs, practitioners and for meeting technology luminaries
  • Learn from business executives, risk managers and technology luminaries outside the security ‘echo chamber’
  • Engage in meaningful interaction with CISOs, innovators, investors and luminaries to collaborate
