“More C-suite and senior-level executives attended HMG Strategy summits than ever before. We’ve been growing steadily for ten years, and we hit our stride in 2017 with an unprecedented schedule of high-value events. This included the exciting launch of a new series of executive leadership summits that were specifically tailored for Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) that were incredibly successful. Congratulations and thanks to all of our speakers, presenters, panelists, sponsors and attendees. We are deeply grateful for your support and enthusiasm. It’s been an absolutely spectacular year, and next year will be even better,” says Muller.
