As information and cybersecurity leaders, we must do more than protect our organization’s data. We must leverage our leadership to ensure our organizations have both the right technologies and the knowledge to use them. Join us to discover how San Antonio’s key cybersecurity executives utilize their leadership to optimize resources, design effective strategies, and better prepare their organizations for tomorrow.

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.
Solutions providers are vetted to include only the organizations bringing the most successful and innovative solutions to market. Sponsors must be approved by the Leadership Board.
