CISO 360 Roundtable

How can we address increasingly advanced threats with a small team?

How can we do more with less while accelerating threat detection and response? 

Please select either 23 or 24 March 2021
3pm-4.30pm GMT

This Roundtable discussion will be hosted on both 23 and 24 March at 3pm-4.30pm GMT. Please select the date on the registration button below that works best for you.

Designed for CISOs with 5 or less team members to uncover together how CISOs with similar team sizes are managing increasingly complex cybersecurity challenges.

As a CISO with a small security team, you are invited to attend this special CISO 360 Roundtable hosted on 23 and 24 March to benchmark capabilities with peers.

Companies with smaller teams are struggling to protect their organizations from today’s increasingly sophisticated threats. These companies cannot afford the range of tools required to prevent, detect and respond to the barrage of attacks leveled against them. What’s needed is a simplified, consolidated, affordable approach to cybersecurity that automates protection, to fill in knowledge gaps and reduce the burden on the overworked teams.

Join this lively roundtable discussion to learn the practical steps your cross-industry peers have taken to quickly and affordably improve their companies’ security posture, and reduce their risks.

Hosted by Pulse Conferences, sponsored by Cynet, join this lively roundtable discussion to compare and learn the practical steps your cross-industry peers have taken to quickly and affordably improve their companies’ security posture. Everyone is a speaker in this group discussion, designed for CISOs with 5 or less team members to uncover together how CISOs with similar team sizes are managing increasingly complex cybersecurity challenges.

We are delighted to welcome Chris Roberts, Chief Security Strategist with Cynet who will lead this discussion alongside a fellow CISO.  Clive Room, Director, Pulse Conferences will top and tail the event as your  Master of Ceremonies.

Questions include

  • What are proven best practices for mid-size to large companies with small security to protect their organisations from today’s increasingly sophisticated cyber threats?
  • What automation tools can prevent, detect and respond to the barrage of daily threats?
  • How can we work smarter while accelerating threat detection and response and reducing the burden on a smaller security team?
  • What are best practices to keep up with cyber attacks without cutting corners to best balance cost vs risk?
  • Do we have enough metrics to determine the health status of our detection, response, investigation controls? How can we achieve continuous assurance on the state of our controls?
  • How can we cut through the deployment time to consolidate security tools and processes?

If you can accept, please below to confirm your place around the table – please select either 23 or 24 March to suit your diary! 

We look forward to seeing you for what promises to be an energetic, educational, memorable – as well as enjoyable – discussion with Chris, Clive and CISO peers!
