The Executive Summit Returns to Black Hat Europe 2018

This day-long event for CISOs and execs will show you the way to next-level skills, strategies, and techniques that will bolster your relevance and wow the board.

Black Hat organizers are excited to announce that the popular Executive Summit will return to Black Hat Europe in London next month!

The Black Hat Executive Summit made its debut last year as an exclusive opportunity for CISOs and other cybersecurity executives to learn about next generation information security strategy from a variety of industry experts.

In order to create an open and candid environment that promotes the sharing of ideas, thoughts, and discussion, the Executive Summit follows Chatham House Rule; neither media nor event coverage is permitted.

This day-long summit was designed specifically for executive security practitioners. It offers a unique venue where they can discuss the pressing issues of the day with their peers and security industry luminaries, and still have plenty of time for breaks, lunch, and convivial networking.

For example, after a keynote from AXA UK CISO Michael Colao and a data-driven update on the state of the cybersecurity landscape from Dark Reading Editor in Chief Timothy Wilson, Netflix’s Jimmy Sanders will discuss the benefits and challenges of baking security into your organization by adopting DevSecOps protocols.

Later in the day Andy Jones (the former Maersk CISO) will present an update on life after NotPetya, the infamous Petya malware variant which broke out of the Ukraine in 2017. As the CISO for Maersk Line last year, Jones worked through what was arguably one of the most disruptive cyberattacks in history. Now, as a researcher with the Information Security Forum, he’ll draw on his experience and that of over 400 global organizations to pose and answer the question: What have we learned?

Also, best-selling author and 20-year cybersecurity veteran Jane Frankland will be speaking about the shortage of skilled practitioners in the industry today, how to understand the ways in which that shortage is caused by a lack of diversity and how we, as an industry, can overcome it to better thwart the threats of today -- and tomorrow.

This is what the Executive Summit is all about: outlining the next-level skills, strategies, and techniques CISOs need to bolster their relevance and wow the board. It’s also a premier place to meet and learn from the leading lights of the industry. If you’re invited, make sure to leave time in your schedule for the special networking reception held to close out the Summit at The Excel in London.

For CISOs and executives looking to transform from a mere manager of information into a corporate champion of business growth, it's imperative to stay on top of the latest insight. That journey begins at the Black Hat Executive Summit!

Black Hat Europe returns to The Excel in London December 3-6, 2018. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
