Information Security Media Group launched the CyberEdBoard global community for CISOs and senior cybersecurity executives in November 2020 and continues to expand at a rapid pace. Now serving the collaborative needs of executive members from over 650 organizations in 57 countries, the private information-sharing community is building on the immediate success of its private CyberEdBoard Talks and Executive Forum meeting series by launching similar virtual events to meet the unique needs of its international members. “CyberEdBoard is valuable because we have connections to different cultures, global experts and executives working in different markets with different levels of security,” says Glauco Sampaio, CISO at Cielo and first executive member from South America. “The problems are the same for everyone and we must work together.”
The CyberEdBoard Talks monthly series most recently featured Equifax’s chief information security officer, Jamil Farshchi, who engaged in a fireside chat with ISMGs senior vice president of editorial, Tom Field, to share experienced leadership perspectives on topics such as cyber resilience, the recent U.S. cybersecurity executive order and reporting business risk to the board of directors. The private meeting was attended by members from over 30 countries, who actively participated in the interactive group conversation and expressed the significant need for collaborative opportunities outside of the North American time zones.
The inaugural International Executive Forum, scheduled for July 2021, will feature a panel of respected CISO and CIO members: Venkatesh Subramaniam, Global CISO, Olam International (India); Nicki Doble, Group CIO, Cover-More Group (Australia); Mario Demarillas, CISO, Exceture (Philippines); and Jo Stewart-Rattray, VP, Australian Computer Society (Australia), who will explore some of the most pressing challenges and priorities facing cybersecurity leadership in the APAC and surrounding regions including: the impact of ransomware and highly public breaches, nation-state threats, third-party risk, cybersecurity talent and the increasing sophistication of attackers. “CyberEdBoard provides an environment for swapping stories and collaborating in a private space which in turns helps us to be stronger together in our approach to our roles in the incredibly challenging cyber world,” Shares Stewart-Rattray. “I value being part of such a global community of C-suite security professionals.”
Other member-exclusive CyberEdBoard activities launching in summer 2021 include monthly CISO Therapy meetings– designed and hosted by executive member, Billy Spears, CISO Alteryx, a four-part master class conducted by Art Coviello, former CEO and chairman of the board at RSA Security, and Laz Lazarikos, co-founder of BlueLava and a unique mentor matching program allowing experienced leaders to contribute to the next generation of CISOs.
