CISO Executive Forum
The role of information security executive continues to be defined and redefined as the integration of business and technology as it evolves. While these new positions gain more authority and responsibility, peers must form a collaborative environment to foster knowledge and influence that will shape the profession.
The Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) recognizes this need and created the exclusive CISO Executive Membership program to give executives an environment to achieve mutual success. Connecting professionals to a large network of peers, valuable information, and top industry experts the program is a functional resource for members to advance personal and industry understanding of critical issues in information security.
The CISO Executive Forum is a peer-to-peer event. The unique strength of this event is that members can feel free to share concerns, successes, and feedback in a peer only environment.
Upcoming CISO Executive Forums
September 30 @ 5:00 pm - October 1 @ 6:30 pm EDT

Past CISO Executive Forum Events
August 4 @ 5:00 pm - August 5 @ 6:30 pm EDT (US)
This ISSA Executive CISO Forum will introduce topics that will get you uniquely informed and updated on today’s advanced technology trends that are impacting your business. We will also discuss how to produce a strategic plan to minimize risk and stay ahead of rapid change and of the competition.

This June we provide you an opportunity to learn from industry experts and explore the ever-changing and dynamic world at the intersection of Privacy and Security! The ISSA Executive Forum series is proud to be partnering with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the world’s largest privacy organization with nearly 50,000 members worldwide. With Europe’s landmark GDPR legislation less than a year old, newly proposed legislation from several US states (most prominently California) promises to make 2019 an even more crucial year for obtaining a greater understanding of the privacy landscape. Together, ISSA and IAPP are working to exchange knowledge and experiences in order for all to make sense of these changes — adding a deeper knowledge to each other’s skill-set is now no longer a “nice to have” — it is essential!
March 2 @ 8:00 pm - March 3 @ 9:15 pm EST (US)
This is a CISO and security practitioner-driven event focused on benefiting our CISO members and qualified guests. The ISSA CISO Executive Forum is your chance to escape from the blizzard of buzzwords to meet up with your cyber-security and risk management peers, industry experts, and specially selected security vendors in a relaxed and confidential environment. We discuss real security programs, share real-world scenarios, and learn from each other.

Privacy has moved to the forefront of a global stage. Response to data breaches is often coordinated through legal departments to protect privilege.

DevOps practices focus on building quality into the code, on automated testing and on a culture of continuous improvement that leads to improved security, stability and throughput. Using continuous deployment techniques, DevOps practitioners have found a way to improve both speed and stability in the systems they support but developing applications quickly may introduce security issues. We will dive into the concept of DevOps to improve application development processes while ensuring the applications are secure, stable and resilient.
