The CISO of the Year Committee and the Chicago Chapters of AITP, ChicagoFIRST, InfraGard, ISACA, ISSA and SIM are excited to welcome you to our 2nd In-Person Mixer of 2023.
The purpose of the CISO of the Year program is to recognize the top CISOs in the greater Chicago area and provide a higher level of awareness and recognition to the CISO (or equivalent in authority) position.
Join us for the 2nd of four events leading up to the Awards Breakfast of October 10th. The four events are Private, intended to support CISO’s and their direct reports, 2023 CISO Nominees, the Program Judges, our CISO Program Sponsors and delegates from esteemed industry partners-AITP, Infragard, ISACA, ISSA, SIM and ChicagoFIRST (limit of up to 3 Board Members from each Industry Partner per event).
This is a great opportunity to recognize the exceptional talent we have in the Chicago Region, to network with security professionals and to meet the candidates and judges for the 2023 CISO of the Year Program. Great Food and Drink Too.
