Security Recognition Meets Thought Leadership

We’re back in person and excited to bring the CSO50 Conference & Awards to the East Coast for the very first time! It’s all happening September 19-21 at the scenic MGM National Harbor Hotel, conveniently located in the metro DC area.

In addition to recognizing this year’s CSO50 award winners, and our CSO Hall of Fame inductees, you’ll get exclusive access to career and operational advice from the profession’s top thought-leaders and drivers of change. Only CSO can deliver an action-packed agenda like this, and it’s all hosted by our Senior Vice President and Managing Director Worldwide, Bob Bragdon.

2022 Sessions Include:

The CSO Event
of the Year!

Today’s security executives aren’t just your average superhero. Sure, you fight (cyber)criminals— but you do so much more! Responsible for risk, you build strategies to mitigate the impact. Responsible for technology, you stay on top of the latest emerging trends. And accountable for budget, you strive to make sure your initiatives don’t just check a box; they provide business value from the outset.

If you’re looking to connect with other like-minded crusaders, you’ll find your people at the CSO50 Conference and Awards. Over an action-packed 3 days, you’ll:

— Meet hundreds of peers and industry leaders who know what it takes to be today’s top security executive
— Hear from award winners who cleared our high hurdle of demonstrable business value in their projects, from AI and application security to zero trust
— Learn how to tackle challenges, including aligning opinionated stakeholders to one vision, driving user awareness and adoption, measuring performance, aggregating data, and so much more
— Meet peers for candid conversations
— Take away insights, relationships, and inspiration that will support you and your team through the challenging months
