Membership Criteria

As we strive to offer the best environment for peer-to-peer sharing by information security executives, the CISO Executive Network periodically reviews our membership and attendance criteria to ensure the highest standards, strong participation, and value to attendees.  Simply put, our events succeed when the most senior information security, privacy, compliance, risk management, and audit professionals in their respective companies and organizations attend our Executive Breakfast Roundtables.

The CISO Executive Network offers two tiers of complimentary membership:  Executive Membership and General Membership.  Executive Membership is reserved for those candidates who meet the criteria below.  Executive Members are welcomed to participate in Executive Breakfast Roundtables, Webinars, and Summits, and have full access to all materials on the website and LinkedIn Discussion Group.  General Members include those candidates who do not meet our Executive Membership Criteria but work with or for Executive Members as staff, or work for firms smaller than those defined by our Executive Membership Criteria.  General Members are welcomed to participate fully in our Webinars and Summits, and have full access to the Website and LinkedIn Discussion Group.

Consultants, Vendors, Value Added Resellers, are not qualified for membership.  If you fall into one of those categories you may apply to participate in our events as sponsors only.  Find out more about sponsorship here.
