On 1st and 2nd November, we will be hosting the 16th IT Security Analyst and CISO Forum! After a successful virtual version of the event last year, it will be great to see all the vendors, analysts and CISOs in person!
The two-day physical event gives vendor attendees an opportunity to brief the most powerful IT security analysts in the world, plus participate in a roundtable debate with a dozen top CISOs and bring in sales leads from the CISO debates.
On day one, vendors can brief and update key analysts who assess and define your company’s future in both a formal and informal environment. It provides an extremely cost & time effective way for your CTO or CEO to brief a year’s worth of analysts in just one day.
Day two is the CISO and analyst roundtable debate. This annual roundtable is looked forward to by a dozen or so CISOs as they know it is one of the only truly honest environments where they can vent their opinions and exchange their experiences amongst like-minded colleagues in a private and informal setting. What is unique and special is that the analysts and vendors get to put a question to the table in order to stimulate debate, resulting in unique insight and the inside track on what the CISOs are looking for from the vendor community.
Don’t just take our word on how great this event is – here are some testimonials from some of last year’s attendees.
Scott Crawford, S&P Global: “We know this has been a challenging year for everyone, particularly so for events, and we know how much you’ve [Eskenzi PR] invested in this personally and corporately. I’m confident I speak for the other industry analysts involved in noting that this is an event we always look forward to, and we particularly look forward to getting together again in person. Until then, I think you’ve done a heroic job with the event this year.”
Derek Brink, Aberdeen Group: “I truly enjoyed the conversations with the vendors; thank you as always for organizing a valuable and well-run experience!”
Perry Carpenter, Chief Evangelist at KnowBe4: “It was a wonderful event which we’ve attended previously and will certainly attend again as it ticks so many boxes, including meeting top security analysts over the course of two days and we get incredible insight and connections with the CISOs during the CISO roundtable.”
Tami Casey, Director of Global Corporate Communications at Qualys: “Congratulations on a successful event! Thanks so much for hosting the events and for including Qualys. You had a great group of analysts and CISOs and our CISO greatly benefited from the engagement. And of course, your team did a fabulous job with notes and follow-ups.”
Stephen Khan, Head of Technology and Cyber Security Risk at HSBC: “I have attended and enjoyed Eskenzi CISO round tables for many years. Discussions and conversations are engaging, open and very candid based on senior leadership experience on the ground. This has helped me steer strategic vision and add tangible value to my organisations. Through these exchanges, I would be surprised if my peer network, industry analyst, and of course vendors do not draw value which will help in their roles. Vendors get a blunt view of CISO drivers, offering ideas for a meaningful conversation and product and services alignment.”
Shan Lee, CISO at Transferwise: “I’ve attended the Eskenzi IT Security Analyst & CISO forum every year since returning to the UK. It’s a great opportunity to tell analysts and vendors what we think about what we’re seeing in the industry, what we want from them, and I’m sure the analysts get plenty out of the inevitable banter that ensues between vendors and CISO’s.”
