Note-takers on each of the tables capture the main points (non-attributed to reflect that the entire event is held under The Chatham House Rule). These notes enable the sharing of the combined tables output, a practical take-away the week post-event.

  • Is it because of skills, too many tools/vendors, attacker sophistication, volume of noise/attacks etc.
  • Are you doing proactive threat hunting, continuous monitoring and investigation of threats?
  • What works, what doesn’t – sharing collective learnings
  • How do I communicate cybersecurity with the Board?
  • What metric for threat management and incident response gets the best reaction when I share it?

  2. Practical Automation Strategies: Open Security and Security Platforms

Sharing proven strategies to develop and adapt cybersecurity maturity models. How are we automating workflows by integrating Open Security and adopting security platforms that produce better, faster outcomes? Practical ways to free up the CISO to focus on business strategic priorities and tasks.
