10th Annual CSO Summit

23 - 25 April 2017

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

The 10th Annual CSO Summit will bring 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, April 23-25 at the Ritz Carlton in Arlington, Virginia. The high-level program will address 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 will examine the importance of collaboration between public and private entities to mitigate threats.

CSOs will also have an 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 will provide time to catch up with friends and celebrate past year accomplishments.
