The IT Security Analyst Forum will enable you to:

  • Build, nurture and update key analysts who assess and define your company’s future, in both a formal and informal environment.
  • Provide an extremely cost & time effective way for your CTO or CEO to brief a year’s worth of analysts in two days.
  • Gather insight into current analyst thinking and assessments.
  • Be ahead of your competitors!

The CISO Roundtable Debate is your chance to quiz Britain’s top CISOs

This annual roundtable is attended by a dozen or so CIOs & CISOs, as they know it’s 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. This event will have your sales guys chomping at the bit to participate!

Over the last two decades, we have had more than 150 vendors attend the Forum from a range of cybersecurity companies including Imperva, Tripwire, Mimecast, FireEye and Synack. Every reputable analyst has also attended from every major analyst house, accompanied by 70+ CISOs.

The forum is one of the very few events - and perhaps the only event – that combines interactions with vendors with an informative roundtable with CISOs. Both make a contribution to helping shape our research in the coming year.

Derek BrinkAberdeen Group

Eskenzi PR continues to excel at creating an environment for security leaders, vendors, and analysts to share perspectives and learn from one another. The industry is better for it.

Jarad CarletonFrost & Sullivan

The quality of conversation with vendors and CISOs is very helpful for my team’s research as well as my research program business planning. I never miss this event.

Chris SteffenEnterprise Management Associates

The IT Security Analyst and CISO forum is nearly the perfect event! It’s the right size, with the right attendees, and the right format. The interactions between CISOs, vendors, and analysts in a safe, unfiltered environment is not only unique, but so wanted (as least by me!) Very much appreciated! And thankful to be invited to attend.

Tami CaseyDirector 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.

Perry CarpenterChief Evangelist & Strategy Officer 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.

Stephen KhanCISO at ASI Cyber Consulting

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. In particular, vendors get a blunt view of CISO drivers, offering ideas for a meaningful conversation and product and services alignment.

Mark SwiftCISO at Trafigura and Group Companies

I find it an invaluable opportunity to engage with leading analysts and vendors, to gauge general security industry sentiment and future focus. They get a lot from the event in return, as the exchange helps them dip-test their product ideas/research with the real world of a bunch of hardened CISOs, who are both candid and honest.

Shan LeeCISO at DocPlanner

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.

Jonathon GordonTakepoint Research

The analyst event was really valuable, squeezing in a month’s worth of briefings into a single day and maximising the face-to-face time with each vendor. Wonderful location and very enjoyable. Thank you Eskenzi!

Rik TurnerOmdia

The IT Security Analyst and CISO Forum is a highlight of the calendar for cybersecurity analysts. Always of great value in terms of meeting new vendors and getting a reality check from the CISOs.
