CISO 360 Dinner Roundtable Discussion:
What does good risk mitigation look like in today’s heightened threat environment?

Tuesday 1 November – 18:30-21:30
One Aldwych,
Press & Type Room 

You are invited to participate in a unique CISO 360 Dinner Roundtable discussion hosted in a private dining room at One Aldwych, London.

This is a great opportunity to benchmark challenges and approaches with CISO peers on what good risk mitigation looks like in today’s heightened threat environment.

Hosted by Pulse Conferences and kindly sponsored by Qualys, this group discussion will connect peers to compare how security teams are being empowered to automate the detection and response to incidents across attack surfaces.

Conducted under The Chatham House Rule on non-attribution, this discussion will be co-chaired by Qualys’ Matt Middleton-Leal and a CISO. Pulse Conferences is your host for the evening.

Talking points:

  • How do we see automated solutions and advancements in artificial intelligence developing at speed
  • What are we doing to patch capabilities and reduce risk
  • How can we consolidate cyber security solutions
  • How are we currently collaborating and knowledge-sharing to combat attacks
  • What are our challenges of keeping up with the cyber demand
  • What do we need to do as an industry to tip the scales back in our favour

Please R.S.V.P. on the link below soonest to confirm your place at the table. There is no cost to attend this event. Confirmations will be done on a ‘first to confirm’ basis.

Guests who will be joining us directly from the networking reception of the Pulse 4th Cyber Exchange 360: Talk to the Board Conference taking place that day will only have a 2-minute walk, from The Waldorf Hotel to One Aldwych for dinner. *If you have not yet registered for the conference, you can register for both the Dinner and Conference on the same registration form.

Yours sincerely,
