CSO Nexus

​​New Member Benefit!​​​

Peer-to-Peer Dialogue

CSO Nexus is a program designed to leverage the resources and connections within the CSO Center. As a member, you have the special opportunity to connect with a CSO Advisor and ask for advice, resources, suggestions and guidance on your most timely and complex issues.

"We all need a sounding board to bounce ideas off on occasion. There are many experts within the CSO Center and the CSO Nexus pairs trusted CSO Center volunteers to facilitate those needed peer-to-peer discussions."

On-Demand Benchmarking Surveys

The CSO Center offers benchmarking surveys sent on demand to security executives around the world. Please send your survey request to

"The benchmarking capability through CSO Nexus is invaluable and without compare. When faced with an question or benchmarking need, I can quickly reach out to a network of security leaders who have, in many cases, experienced the same issue(s) or security concerns. I am able to glean high-level and detailed information - colleagues are quite willing to share within this group, which prevents me from having to "reinvent the wheel", and also provides strong benchmarking to support my recommendations and decisions to senior management."
