Designed for Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs)

CISO Masterclass

The Programme

The role of the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is vast and complex. It involves everything from cyber security strategy and technical design, to implementing effective security solutions and processes and responding to cyber incidents and breaches.

We offer a two-day course designed to equip leaders in Information Security with the tools to make the most of their current role and succeed in their career.

The sessions will cover topics such as:

  • Leadership styles and attributes
  • The ideal CISO from an experienced headhunter
  • Dealing with regulators and navigating complexity
  • Communicating during a crisis 


  • This programme is on hold in 2021
  • Practical working groups with a strong learning element
  • London



  • Existing and emerging leaders in Information Security
  • FTSE250 companies or equivalents - mix of industries
  • Maximum 20 participants

“This was very different to the normal way of doing training and highly specific to the CISO role.”
