The CSO Xchange is a group of thought leaders and executive-level peers who have a passion for security, risk management or compliance and the responsibility to protect their company’s information assets. The CSO Xchange promotes the sharing of ideas, concerns, and thoughts about GRC, security strategy, best practices and pragmatic solutions. The CSO Xchange is sponsored by the Information Security Summit and provides group members opportunities to meet their peers, exchange information and learn from the best the industry has to offer.

This group is private and new memberships must be approved through the Information Security Summit. The CSO Xchange does not permit memberships from IT consulting, service or product related organizations – unless approved by the existing membership.   

The current cost of an annual membership is $500 and the benefits of joining the CSO Xchange include:

  •  Participating in a forum for sharing ideas with industry peers
  • Peer networking and social events
