ciso Introduction


Knowledge transfer and exchange has always been a challenge for organizations. Our intent for this exclusive and high-level event is distinctively clear - it is to create a platform to facilitate effective knowledge exchange, where the latest information security threats and landscape evolution are being discussed and debated.

The EC-Council CISO Executive Summit – Embark on a Journey to Develop the New Platform for Global IS Thought Leadership

Be on the forefront of a new global initiative where today’s world-class leaders in information security will gather to navigate through international waters. Join these leaders as they follow the wind of change that is sweeping through the IS community motivating today’s information guardians to develop a new way of thinking to ensure success in protecting their respective organizations.
Today’s cyber threats are not limited to a specific industry or country, but are infiltrating industries across the world on a grand scale. Masters of security must unite and set a course to discover ways to overcome these challenges.

  • How should top IS professionals steer through the obstacles of managing information security in a global arena which crosses international borders?
  • What is the best way to manage and implement a high performing information security program?
  • How does an information guardian ensure that the security products coming out of international markets provide real solutions? Are they able to see beyond ‘fear-backed’ marketing strategies?
  • Are chief IS officers ready to implement new emerging technologies and processes to optimize IS programming?

The goal of EC-Council’s Global CISO Forum is to create an open platform for top information security executives to discuss their successes, failures, obstacles, and challenges. The open conversation will lead to the creation of actionable items that can be discussed and applied to the organization. The CISO Executive Summit’s format creates the opportunity for:
  • Knowledge sharing Share best practices and knowledge to overcome the challenges that our industry presents today so that you are prepared to defend tomorrow
  • Networking Network with the industry’s leading security professionals and develop the support that will help you design, develop and manage the most effective information security strategy for your organization.
  • Shaping the future Share your knowledge and experience with your colleagues to develop a global Summit format with a focus on international IS issues
