Information Security Executives Council

Apply Here

The field of information security has grown and evolved significantly in recent years, and having a CISO function in the organization has become the standard. As CISOs we are thought leaders in the area of Information Security and are responsible for establishing the enterprise vision, strategy and program to protect information assets and technologies.  We focus on defending against unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, alteration or destruction of the organization’s information and we work to provide confidentiality, integrity, and availability in our information systems.

Some of our discussion topics include:

  • Incident Response: Planning for Cyber-attacks, disruptions and other issues

  • Human Capital: Recruiting, developing and retaining top tier talent for key cyber security roles

  • Threat Landscape: Role of cyber threat intelligence analysis

  • Data analytics: What are you learning from your data

  • Information Sharing: Public Private Partnerships

  • Security Awareness: Role of employees in an effective information security program

The open exchange between senior executives at our council meetings helps us to keep pace with the evolving challenges we face.

Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership.
