CISO Boardroom

How to reposition cybersecurity as a robust business investment strategy

Led by:
Dr. Robert Coles
Chief Information Security Officer/Head of Information Protection & Privacy

Gain rare insights into the what, where, how and why. 

CISO Boardroom is the ultimate ‘sound boarding’ workshop for today’s cybersecurity and digital risk leaders. All invited guests are expected to contribute to the discussions that will be held under the Chatham House Rule. The talks end with lunch. Designed to produce practical take-aways.

Explore questions such as:

  • How can we take current security practices to create new models and strategies to build security value?
  • How can we strive for higher quality security practices, standards and sharing?
  • What best practice security strategy looks like now and how is this rapidly evolving with digital transformation?

Pre-event: you shape the final agenda. Upon registration you will be asked to subit your top 3 priorities, challenges or questions that you would like to see discussed during the CISO 360 Congress and CISO 360 Boardroom. We thank you in advance for your input. Feedback is confidential and ensures that we directly address your most critical requirements for a fully immersive experience.

Post-event: an output report capturing the key points from the interactive boardroom discussions will be shared after the event. Participants, and a wider group of senior executives with a special interest in these areas, will receive the report not more than 10 days after the event.  The report will reflect that the discussions are held under The Chatham House Rule.

Help shape the agenda and speaker panel

Is there an industry luminary that you’ve always wanted to meet? Is there a company, industry sector or country that is ahead of the curve that you would like to benchmark approaches with?

Our programmes are highly researched with practitioners who do the job day in and day out.  They are organic to ensure that we remain agile to meet the needs of senior executives.

Pulse Conferences welcomes your input into shaping the agenda and speaker panels for our events.

Enquire about becoming a speaker

When it comes to telling a story, we know that people want to hear about the challenges and failures as well as the successes.

We also believe that Experience + Value = Story.

  • Do you have a business story that simply must be told?
  • Are you working on an innovative security project?
  • Are you willing to openly share inspiring insights and new ideas to advance the security community?

Please call +44 (0)20 7936 8989 or email for further information.
