Integrated security, threat and intelligence strategies to protect people, profits and reputation and leverage global business operations

Team Pulse would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who participated in the inaugural CSO 360 Congress hosted this week 6-7 December 2017 at the 5 star W Hotel in Amsterdam. This event was the ultimate ‘sound boarding’ and connective platform for senior in-house chief security officers, corporate security, resilience, threat management, intelligence and crisis response directors from 15 different countries spanning Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the U.S.

In particular, we would like to thank the expert international speaker panel of security practitioners who openly shared experiences and approaches under the Chatham House Rule. We would also like to thank the official event sponsors, CyberArk, Barclay Simpson, iCetana, SafeHotels Alliance and Control Risks without whom these events would not be possible.

Check out our video from the CSO 360 Congress in Amsterdam and what speakers, sponsors & delegates thought of the event.
