Our CxO Tribe members include CIOs, CISOs and security leaders from different industries ranging from Banking and Finance, Healthcare, Hospitality, Education, FinTech and many more. Through closed group, exclusive sessions like these, we strive to establish a safe space for our community to exchange their unique industry insights, perspectives and experiences. 

We had our first Singapore CxO Roundtable (left) in April, where our members came together to share their challenges and best approaches. This discussion topics include the Agility of the security team, Incident Response and The approach to risk management and building trust with security frameworks like ISO 27001 and Trust mark.

In September’s CxO round table session (right), we were privileged to have the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) as our supporting partner. With Veronica, CSA Director (Safer Cyberspace) sharing about the recently launched Cyber Safe Certification, our members further the discussion on finding their appropriate trust mark level and third-party vendor management.

All in all, it has been a wonderful experience facilitating insightful conversations and sparking new connections within the community. We will have more get-togethers like these, so if you are a CIO, CISO or currently leading up security in your organisation and keen to be part of our community,
