New York, NY – March 7, 2018 – As the increase and complexity of cyber-attacks has soared in recent months, it’s become evident that traditional reactive approaches to protecting the enterprise are no longer sufficient. Progressive Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) recognize that they must embrace proactive, innovative approaches to securing the enterprise and clearly communicate the rationale for these tactics to the CEO and the board of directors. The courageous leadership qualities needed by CISOs to reimagine and reinvent information security practices will be the top themes that will be discussed at the upcoming 2018 New York CISO Executive Leadership Summit, produced by HMG Strategy, to be held on April 5, 2018 at the Grand Hyatt New York in New York, NY.

As bad actors continue to apply increasingly sophisticated electronic warfare techniques, cyber teams need to make use of cutting-edge technologies and methods to better understand cyber criminals and proactively defend the enterprise,” said Hunter Muller, HMG Strategy’s President & CEO. “CISOs and information security leaders that embrace innovation and partner with the CEO and the board position themselves to transform their organization’s cybersecurity strategies.”

The New York CISO Executive Leadership Summit will kick-off with a compelling executive panel discussion featuring Jeffrey W. Brown, Chief Security and Risk Officer, Investment Management, BNY Mellon; Mignona Cote, Global Head of Identity and Access Management, AIG; Frank Price, VP & CISO, CVS Health; and John Repko, CIO, Johnson Controls. These executives will discuss their roles in leading transformational cybersecurity strategies for their organizations along with best practices for working closely with fellow executives to protect the enterprise.

Other captivating sessions will include an executive keynote by SecurityScorecard CEO and Co-Founder Aleksandr Yampolskiy who will share his insights on the current state of third-party risks along with the benefits of applying intelligent IP attribution in risk management; an executive briefing given by Asheem Chandna, Partner, Greylock Partners; an executive panel that will examine how emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence/machine learning and behavioral analytics offer information security teams faster and more effective ways to detect malicious behavior; a panel of leading search executives who will share recommendations for CISOs to elevate their personal brands and accelerate their career ascent; an executive interview with Edward Amoroso, Founder & CEO, TAG Cyber LLC; a set of executive roundtable working groups that will enable attendees to brainstorm with their peers on top challenges and opportunities, including must-have communication strategies for the board of directors, gamification and employee security awareness, and digital disruption; followed by an executive panel that will focus on how to foster innovation while leveraging security as a competitive advantage.
