Thank you to everyone who attended our CISO-Zero Trust 360 Dinner Roundtable

Hosted Wednesday 1 March 2023
Aquavit | Stockholm Room

Transitioning to a Positive Security Model with Zero Trust and Micro-Segmentation

Peer to peer sharing on trends, strategies and tactics for Zero Trust and Micro-Segmentation in 2023!

This unique dinner roundtable discussion was hosted at Aquavit, the restaurant for Scandinavian fine-dining near Piccadilly in central London.

Hosted by Pulse Conferences and kindly sponsored by ColorTokens, this group discussion connected peers to discuss and compare approaches to Zero Trust and micro-segmentation.

Zero Trust has progressed beyond hype to become the go to cybersecurity strategy for most organisations. Micro-segmentation is a great first step to robust security, but only if you get it right. Micro-segmentation evolved from a need to secure data centres, applications, and workloads from advanced threats that would breach the perimeter and move laterally without detection. CISO peers discussed lessons learned and the way forward in 2023!

Key discussion points

  • Current threat landscape and trends. What have I learned to take forward from 2022?
  • Zero Trust strategies that would be critical for 2023
  • What do we mean by Zero Trust and Micro-segmentation? What do these approaches involve? What are the pros and cons?
  • How can we plan and build resilience? 
  • Micro-segmentation strategy – what are the benefits and challenges? How would you introduce Micro-segmentation as part of your Zero Trust journey?

The group discussion was conducted under The Chatham House Rule of non-attribution. Pulse Conferences was the host for the evening. 

Yours sincerely,

Team Pulse

*Please note that the Roundtable is only open to CISOs and senior cybersecurity practitioners who are doing the job of securing the mid to large size organisation where they currently work (rather than for external advisors or providers please).

Venue and directions

Aquavit London | Stockholm Room

The CISO-Zero Trust 360 Dinner Roundtable will hosted in the private dining room, Stockholm, at Aquavit London. A fresh, new concept that combines inspired signature dishes with sophisticated design, all in a uniquely Nordic style. Situated in the recently re-developed St James’s Market in central London. Well established in New York (two Michelin stars) and Tokyo – where the experience modernises traditional Nordic ingredients and cooking processes served as a fine dining experience – the recently opened central London branch, in St James’s Market, has taken a more contemporary approach that focuses on serving a mix of dishes to celebrate the region’s diverse fare.
