Welcome, Guest


The CISO Executive Network is a peer-to-peer organization dedicated to helping information security, IT risk management, privacy, and compliance executives be more successful.  We accomplish this mission by providing opportunities for those professionals to meet periodically in their local cities to share with one another and hear from industry experts.

Chapters include: Atlanta, Bay Area (serving San Francisco, San Jose, Silicon Valley), Boston, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Mid-Atlantic (serving Baltimore and DC), Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New York.

Here's what our members have to say:

"I participate in the CISO Executive Network because it affords me great opportunities to share information with my peers during the chapter meetings and outside of the meetings too. It is helpful to get the legal perspectives from the hosting firm as well as exposure to information and products from vendors. Overall, the CISO Executive Network is a well-run, well-organized forum with the added bonus of the Executive and Healthcare Summits each year. "  Keith Fricke, CSO, Catholic Health Partners

"The CISO Executive Network is an extremely valuable resource in my role as V.P., Corporate Security Officer.  The content of the chapter meetings is always quite relevant to current business challenges, the discussion is consistently high-quality, and the format is very well organized.  Beyond that, the interaction with peers across multiple industries brings a value that is immeasurable.  I now have the ability to reach out to a wide audience of security leaders through the LinkedIn group whenever needed, and I am able to have thought-provoking discussions during the chapter meetings.  These interactions are proving to be of immense benefit.  I highly recommend the CISO Executive Network to any security leader in any industry."  Kevin Hamel, Vice President, Security Officer, Operations, COCC




You would not build a house without a blueprint and plan.  Why build a security program and implement security controls without an architecture?  The vanishing enterprise perimeter is not an excuse to forego having an enterprise security architecture.  In fact, it is even more of a reason to have a strong architecture.  In this series we will cover a number of topics including which framework to adopt, what layers of security make sense, how to incorporte use of the cloud, and more.  Make sure to bring your Lead Security Architect to this meeting.

  • Security Frameworks
  • Layered Security
  • Remote Access Techniques
  • Cloud Security
  • Network Security (UTM/NGFW, IDS/IPS, DDoS Protection)
