Join CSO for an Exclusive Security Research Breakfast

October 10, 2019 | Palo Alto, CA

It can be hard to get into the mindset of your customer, particularly when their professional DNA is all about security. As a strategic partner to their executive team, CSOs/CISOs are mitigating risk for their organization, and working to keep the organization secure as the business continues to innovate. 

So where are these security decision-makers spending their time? What is on their agenda for the next year? Where do they want to invest, and do they have the budget to do so?

Learn the answers to these questions and much more from our annual security research, including IDG’s Security Priorities Study. Additionally, Bob Bragdon will share insights directly from CSOs and CISOs that he has heard from throughout the year.

This informative research breakfast will provide an intimate setting to network with your colleagues, marketing peers, as well as executives from IDG.
