CISO 360 Roundtable: Red Teaming

Wednesday 24 April 2024 | 17:30-21:30
Private Dining Venue | Manchester

The current state of physical and cyber red teaming

Join us for an intimate gathering in the wonderful city of Manchester to connect with CISO peers as we dive deep into tactics and strategies on the current state of physical and cyber red teaming.

In a post-COVID world, some mind-sets, attitudes and business decisions have reverted back to the thinking that physical and cyber red teaming exercises are not a necessity. Yet it goes without saying that we’re in a time of year on year growth of threats and attacks.

The main aim of any red team security exercise is to quickly help the client become more resilient by exercising and strengthening their blue (defensive) teams.  Red teaming on a frequent basis can significantly increase your resilience and reduce the impacts of a real breach and significant improvements can be made from the very first engagement.

Brought to you by Pulse Conferences and sponsored by QinetiQ, this exclusive dinner discussion will be hosted under the Chatham House Rule, ensuring candid and insightful exchanges. We will be discussing topics including how your organisation views physical and cyber red teaming and the frequency in which you undertake it.

Please R.S.V.P. below to confirm your complimentary place.

We very much look forward to welcoming CISOs, Chief Security Officers, Intelligence Directors and senior cybersecurity and resilience practitioners as our guests, who are currently working in-house within medium to large enterprises.

Yours sincerely,

Team Pulse
