Welcome to CISO Track ÔÇô your peer-to-peer information exchange unconference!

Audience 1st and The CISO Track are partnering to provide an exclusive environment for cybersecurity professionals like yourselves to share knowledge and practices on carefully selected topics.

This isn't a sales pitch platform, or a long lecture hall. Rather, we believe in fostering dialogues and sparking discussions, curated and steered by peers just like you.

Our sessions are designed to be concise yet impactful, featuring insights from vetted industry practitioners that span a brief 10-15 minutes, followed by the "meat" of the discussion - you and your peers diving into the topic and sharing your personal perspectives!

Wondering who our practitioners are? They're speakers committed to keeping the floor product-pitch-free. Their presentations, pre-approved by our proficient program committee, focus solely on setting up the discussion around the problem domain so that the real experts - you and your peers, can truly dissect it and gain insights on real-world solutions/approaches.

Join us at the CISO Track, where it's all about sharing, learning, and growing together in a trusted, intimate circle of peers. Your journey to enhanced knowledge and best practices starts here.

The CISO Track unfolds over the entire business day ensuring you have ample time to delve into a range of curated topics.

The Chatham House Rule allows for the use of information received, but the identity or affiliation of the speaker(s), or any other participant, cannot be revealed. This guarantees the privacy of our participants, fostering a safe space for open discussions.
