The Collaborative Mindset: The New Path to the C-Suite

The 10th Annual CSO Summit brought leading CSOs, key policymakers, and business and security thought leaders together for two-days of deliberate conversations, executive development, and plenty of old-fashion relationship building, 23-25 April ​at the Ritz Carlton in Arlington, Virginia. The high-level program addressed critical leadership issues including breaking down cyber and operational security silos, using proven metrics to assess security ROI, and the fundamentals of building an in house intelligence program. Event Keynote John Walsh, criminal investigator, human and victim rights advocate, and host and creator of America’s Most Wanted examined the importance of collaboration between public and private entities to mitigate threats.

CSOs also had the opportunity to develop and advance executive leadership skills to influence business decision making by participating in a special Executive Business track. Two exclusive networking receptions provided time to catch up with friends and celebrate past year accomplishments.

Once a specialty concern, cyber risk has become an area of high priority for corporate boards and senior management. Cyber risk extends well beyond the IT department to encompass legal, governance, audit, physical security, and more—all of the components of Enterprise Security Risk Management. Learn about today's and tomorrow's cyber risk in the context of ESRM approaches, tools and techniques to mitigate that risk. Become the leader that your executives and board look to in order to manage this risk.

This panel discussion addresses the evolution of a business intelligence program from a single person function to a robust center of intelligence.
