CISO Executive Forum

HomeCISO Advisory Council Guest RegistrationMember BenefitsMembership Criteria

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.

"The opportunity to interact and network with others at this level, discussing challenges we all face honestly, candidly is invaluable.”
- Walter Williams
Director of Security and Compliance
Lattice Engines

"I do not attend many of the information security conferences because I could teach most of the sessions they present. I continue to attend the ISSA CISO Executive Forums every year because the content is strategic, new, and valuable, the speakers are of the highest quality, and I’m with peers who share the unique challenges we face as senior level information security officers."
- Ann Seltzer
IT Global Security Services
Brady Corporation

"The topics at the ISSA CISO Executive Forum are relevant to today’s challenging Information Security issues that span all industries. Relationships that I have formed through this venue with both participants and vendors are long lasting and have proven to be invaluable resources in facing common challenges.”

- Kevin Rigney
