Virtual Roundtable: CISO 360 –  Secure development during digital transformation – A new approach for a new reality

10 February 2021
14:00 – 15:30 GMT

How can we as CISOs ‘shift left’ to enable our developers to innovate faster while we secure enterprise applications at scale?

  • There is no cost to attend for in-house practitioners – CISOS, CIOs, Developers, Heads of Architecture, Networks, Applications.
  • Places are limited to 5 guests for this event to maintain an in-depth peer to peer benchmarking focus for the discussion and the sharing of best practices.
  • Confirmations will be done on a ‘first to confirm’ basis.
  • Led by CISOs, the Roundtables are individual sessions designed around content, connection and contribution. Kindly sponsored, there is no sales talk and no presentation.
  • This roundtable will be hosted on Zoom.

As a CISO, you are invited to attend this special CISO 360 Roundtable hosted on 10 February.  During the discussion, you will benchmark operational security capabilities with peers.

As companies adapt to compete in today’s marketplace, business leaders need to be aggressive and intentional about driving adoption of agile and DevOps within their organisations. However, the shift to digital initiatives means more software and that means more software risk. Your infrastructure is now part of your application, blurring the lines on who is responsible for security. DevOps has accelerated the deployment of software. But where does this leave your security practice?

Led ‘by, with and for’ CISOs, you will exchange experiences with peers on secure development during digital transformation. What are the new approaches for new realities/ How can we as CISOs ‘shift left’ to enable our developers to innovate faster while securing your enterprise applications at scale?

Hosted by Pulse Conferences, sponsored by Snyk and Sep2, we will connect peers for an energetic debate on the practical approaches, realities, challenges and successes.  All participants are encouraged to contribute throughout for this digital face to face benchmarking event. 

  • Why the old ways of doing security don’t mesh with the way we build apps today
  • The dev-first security practices that can cut risk without harming agility
  • The new tools and the shift in mindset that these changes demand

The discussion is held under The Chatham House Rule of non-attribution.

We are delighted to welcome Alyssa Miller, BISO of S&P Global Ratings who will lead this discussion, working alongside a further CISO. Clive Room, Director, Pulse Conferences will top and tail the event as your esteemed Master of Ceremonies.
