The third annual IT Security Analyst & CISO Forum Debates will take place this year in London on the 17th May at No 4 Hamilton Place from 2pm – 6pm. This unique event consists of four panel debate sessions made up of some of the UK’s top CISOs from HSBC, GSK, Canon, National Grid, Publicis Groupe and other global IT Security Association Leaders. The panels will provide attendees with insight from cyber security leaders on: what to do when recovering from a data breach, the 365-day countdown until GDPR, solving the skills shortage and whether IoT is overhyped or a force to be reckoned with.
“The CISO debates are time well spent. We tackle a broad range of security issues,” said Steve Williamson, Director, Risk & ITCP Mgmt, GlaxoSmithKline. “The debate is rich and stimulating as it is fed by many years of collective experience across different industries. I also value the opportunity to network with peers and analysts from different companies.”
Quentyn Taylor, Director of Information Security, Governance and Risk, Canon Europe agreed, stating: “The IT Security Analyst and CISO Forum Debates is one of the most insightful conferences I have attended, great speakers, superb panels and tremendously useful content.”
Ray Stanton, Group CISO, National Grid, added: “The CISO debates provide an excellent forum for discussion on real items that are affecting the industry and I have always found – unlike other debates – try to give some practical take-a-ways for attendees, while having some fun!”
The IT Analyst and CISO Forum Debates is a well-established and invaluable event that will give registered attendees the inside track on some of the hottest boardroom topics. Professionals interested in the event can register here and be eligible for CPE credits towards SSCP®/CISSP® and ISACA certifications.
