The threat of cyberattacks is one of the most intimidating challenges business leaders face today, yet it’s also a subject that leaders in the industry have made considerable progress in addressing. But to continue tackling these issues head on, leaders need a forum to engage and discuss new innovations and strategies for building offensive capabilities in cybersecurity.
Since 2003, Executive Alliance Inc. has built a national community of information security and technology executives through its premier Summit programs, National Symposium and Executive Dinners to give leaders an opportunity to share their insights and ideas with one another.
With content driven by senior-level attendees, Executive Alliance’s regional one-day Summits bring together leaders in an exclusive environment, with only their peers present. The focus is on both their challenges and the successes they have experienced as they continue to deal with complex technology infrastructure and changing business needs. Held at the Breakers Beach Resort, the seventh annual National Security Leaders Symposium, October 21st–23rd, 2018, attracts top minds from across the country—such as Julie Porro, CISO of JetBlue Airways—to share their insights across different industries and experience. Insights like Porro’s exemplify the caliber of leadership, poise, and business and technical prowess of attendees at Executive Alliance’s programs.
At the National Security Leaders Symposium in 2017, Porro discussed her vision for the role of CISO. She shared that she believes providing more support and autonomy to a CISO will quicken the transition from what was traditionally a tactical role to a much more strategic one, which will help drive positive business outcomes. Porro has shed light on new developments in the information security space and contributed to the agenda content and roundtables discussions.
In addition to a premier group of attendees at the programs, Executive Alliance partners with leading technology providers at the Summits to showcase market cutting-edge technologies that provide solutions to the challenges facing today’s IT industry. These partners are referred by attendees and bring their senior leadership to share their vision and expertise in the marketplace, dedicating time with attendees to support and help ensure success.
Executive Alliance’s team is known throughout the industry for its execution of compelling programs in terms of speakers, content, and the engaged community at the programs. With over sixteen years focused on listening to the needs of the community, Executive Alliance’s number one goal is to deliver on the commitment of an exceptional experience for attendees and technology partners.
