Executive Events and Workshops

New Cyber Executive puts on semi-regular events on topics specifically for CISOs and cybersecurity executives. Topics include becoming more effective through building and enhancing relationships, tapping into personal and professional creativity, finding your leadership style and voice, trust and authenticity, common professional challenges for business-facing cyber leaders, NCE research findings, the CISO and the Board, identifying and avoiding common cybersecurity executive specific traps, among other topics of particular relevance to leaders in cybersecurity.

The Rules Are Being Written*

Some professions have existed for millennia: engineer, lawyer, teacher, banker, soldier, artisan. The CISO role has existed for a blink of an eye - so how do we leverage that to shape our current and future roles?

Composure and Credibility

"Executive Presence" is a poorly defined expectation. What actually goes into executive presence? In this workshop we talk about one element: Composure, and it's impact on credibility with your leaders.

Be Disruptive? Or Be Disrupted?*

Risk-taking can take seasoned leaders to new levels. How can you identify high-potential disruptive moves, frame them to de-risk them, and use them as career-enhancing moves? Even if they fail?

Bringing Clarity to Your CISO Goals

What are your goals as a CISO? In particular, relative to the mission and goals of the organization? How can you believably and compellingly cascade organizational mission into your responsibility area?

  • * Several years of CISO experience strongly recommended for this event
