    Keeping up with Compliance

    Between GDPR, CCPA & a dozen states across the country developing their own, unique privacy regulations, compliance has become an essential function for cybersecurity executives. Leaders, now, need to be more than experts in security; they must also have a pulse on ever-evolving regulations. These executives are bridging the gap and channeling new policies into tangible security strategies.

    Chris Forbes, EVP & CISO, Banc of California

    Now comes your turn to share ideas. Each table is headed by a Discussion Leader, ready with questions based on the keynote panel topic. Tables will collectively brainstorm opportunities to address challenges addressed by the panel. Attendees will then switch tables twice to discuss a new set of challenges and questions with a different group of peers. This allows attendees to connect and have in-depth conversations with more peers bringing unique perspectives from across different disciplines and industries.

    Discussions will continue to percolate across the entire space as attendees have the opportunity to refresh drinks and tapas.

    The program closes by wrapping up the evening’s conversation into tangible takeaways to implement into your own organization.
