Access new and emerging security topics with Europe's leading CISOs

Request Membership Share knowledge about new and emerging security topics in a confidential IDC network with Europe's leading CISOs.

You know that being on top of security challenges is crucial for your business and your ideas flourish when you interact with other inspirational people.

Reasons to Join the IDC European CISO Hub



Members of the CISO Hub are handpicked for their personal commitment and for being security leaders in their industry. This is a community that sees the responsibility of the CISO broadening to focus on pushing security innovation forward, a remit that is much larger than traditional security discussions. Members see security as the business enabler for their company and their industry and have the courage to lead the way.



In practice, IDC hosts the group virtually once a month, and we invite you to join us online to discuss a security topic, technology, or trend with the leading analyst in the field. We will discuss experiences, draw parallels, and see the world in a different light, enabling participants to relate perspectives to their own situations and discuss ideas with peers of the same caliber.



The CISO Hub is a confidential network in which we use the Chatham House Rule (i.e., participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the other participant may be revealed) to encourage free discussion and collective knowledge sharing.
