    Attendee Feedback

    EC-Council’s prior events in Las Vegas, NV; Miami, FL; St. Louis, MO have been highly valuable events for our attendees and sponsors.

    Here’s some of the feedback we’ve gotten from our attendees:
    • “Excellent insight into an alternate definition on risk and how to answer the question “Are we secure?”
    • “A great combination of solid theory and actionable guidance.”
    • A discussion of maturity rarely reaches that level of depth and practical application.
    • “ … I got a great idea during the panel discussion for an IP awareness campaign.”
    • “That’s why I come to these things…smart people with great angles on who to improve security incrementally.”
    • “… differing views are best made available in conferences such as the EC-Council CISO Summit. Within these venues, lively discussions explore topics that are of interest to all security managers.
    • “EC Council’s CISO Summit is an excellent opportunity to interface with not only some of the largest organizations, but also the smaller ones as well.”
    • “It was a truly wonderful event. It’s very healthy for information security executives and professionals to get together to share what’s working in their own organization for the betterment of other organizations as well.”
    • “ … very well organized with a good mix of talent from diverse industries. The topics were excellent and targeted to the need of the industry today.”

    Who Should Attend


    Due to the nature of the discussions that will take place, this will be a closed-door event open only to senior information security executives (C-levels, VPs, Senior Directors, etc.).

    If you are interested in attending the Global CISO Forum, please send your resume to amber.williams@eccoucnil.org to request an invitation.

The CCISO Program is EC-Council’s groundbreaking executive certification. At the Global CISO Forum the exam, courseware, and training will be available to the public for the first time. Anyone interested in earning this certification can take live training and the exam at the Forum.

Knowledge transfer and exchange has always been a challenge for organizations. Our intent for this exclusive and high-level event is distinctively clear – it is to create a platform to facilitate effective knowledge exchange, where the latest information security threats and land scape evolution are being discussed and debated.
