You are invited to participate in these unique dinner roundtable discussions hosted on two dates in two cities: Thursday 6th October, at Shanahan’s on the Green in Dublin and Thursday 3rd November at the Dome on Edinburgh.  Guests will have the opportunity to benchmark challenges and approaches with CISO peers, enabling a holistic view of today’s security operations.

Hosted by Pulse Conferences and kindly sponsored by Hunters, 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 of non-attribution, this discussion will be co-chaired by a fellow CISO. Pulse Conferences is your host.

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.

Many thanks for considering this invitation. We hope that you can join peers for what promises to be a dynamic discussion, a top culinary experience and great company!

Yours sincerely,
