Topical and engaging 90-minute virtual CIO and CISO summits, focused on reimagining the business and the future of work, have drawn thousands of top-tier security leaders and technology executives since early March

 

WESTPORT, CT. – June 26, 2020 – HMG Strategy, the world's #1 digital platform for connecting technology executives to reimagine the enterprise and reshape the business world, is excited to announce its upcoming lineup of Virtual CIO Summits in Philadelphia, New York and Silicon Valley after zooming to the top of the industry as the premier producer of Virtual CIO and CISO Summits since shifting to a digital events format in early March.
