This dynamic, in-person event will bring together the top global security leaders and industry experts who will share their insights on how the role of the CISO continues to evolve, the factors that are contributing to these changes along with the expanded responsibilities for enterprise risk that security leaders have taken on.

“As the global threat landscape continues to undergo dramatic changes, this has forced CISOs to invoke fresh cyber strategies, to develop new skill sets, and foster creative approaches to communicating these risks to the C-suite and the Board,” said Hunter Muller, President and CEO of HMG Strategy. “One of the key topics we explore at our CISO Executive Leadership Summits are the different ways that the role of the CISO is evolving, why cybersecurity strategies need to be transformed, along with the types of skills needed by cyber professionals to defend the enterprise on a go-forward basis.”
