Journeys worth sharing to progress security and build resilience

Security 360 Circle, recently known as Pulse Security Circle, is the community hosted by Pulse Conferences. We are a growing, international community of Chief Information Security Officers, Chief Security Officers, directors of resilience, risk, intelligence, investigations and industry luminaries including CMOs, CIOs, CTOs, Chief Researchers, Analysts. 

Originally created in April 2020 as a way to keep our CISO and CSO 360 security communities talking during the lock down period, the Pulse Security Circle is now a fast-growing community of peers who share a common interest in the success and long-term growth of security, risk, financial crime and governance related disciplines and markets. Participants are Compeers, a word chosen to capture the purpose of the Security 360 Circle – an informal sense of belonging to a “Community” combined with “Peer”, reflecting the peer to peer sharing and learning from the experiences of others.


Participation in monthly online discussions on timely security-related matters that promote an holistic approach to building resilience and securing innovation.

Invitations to participate and to take a lead in the direction of our conferences, roundtables, interviews.

Who is involved in the Security 360 Circle?

Security 360 Circle compeers include CISOs, CTOs, CIOs, CSOs, Corporate Security Directors, intelligence directors, investigators, risk, technology developers and architects, governance specialists and industry luminaries from the most innovative and influential companies. Compeers who enjoy debate, thought leadership and who have an eye on the future. Multinational businesses, banks, governments, technology companies, investors and advisory groups.  

How often does the Security 360 Circle meet?

Pulse hosts two flagship congresses (CISO 360 Congress and CSO 360 Congress) and various regional conferences in the Middle East, Africa, Americas, Asia & Oceania, Europe and the UK (see the conference calendar here). We also host Roundtables around the world (see upcoming dates here).

A key benefit to joining the Security 360 Circle is participation in our monthly, 60-minute, private Zoom roundtables with fellow Compeers.  Participants share insights, lessons learned, intelligence and knowledge on a pre-announced topic each time, and are encouraged to put forward topics and to volunteer to lead a discussion. A volunteer speaker shares insights on a pre-agreed timely security-related topic before we open up the subject for the group discussion. Compeers can introduce themselves to group, share updates and contribute regularly on these Zoom calls. The ambience will feel like being with trusted friends.

Can I join the Security 360 Circle?

Compeers must be interested in and willing to share your knowledge and experience with peers to progress the success and long-term growth of security, risk, financial crime and governance related disciplines and markets. If so, you are warmly invited to reach out to or to one of the Directors below to find out more about this group of executives, practitioners and market leading companies.

What is the cost of joining Security 360 Circle?

There is no fee to join the Security 360 Circle and the online roundtables are not sponsored. We do not share attendance information with any 3rd parties.

This is the platform to share thought-leadership and everyone’s input is greatly appreciated.
