The executive dinner was both interesting and enjoyable. 

The FireEye presentations were very interesting and provided excellent insight. 

The food was excellent and the discussion was highly entertaining.  

It is always very useful to meet other CISOs to discuss challenges and get an excellent view from FireEye on how to deal with these challenges.

Excellent presentations and discussions around GDPR were lively. 

It was also good to have a chance to speak with FireEye / Mandiant about some of the services they offer that I was unaware of.

The presentation and discussion session were valuable and it was excellent to hear about the different points of view around GDPR.

A really good evening, with lively and interesting discussions going on around the table.
It was great that everyone was engaged in the subject - a knowledgeable group that we could all learn from each other.

Beautiful place and very good dinner.
Well balanced selection of people which permit to share different point of view and learn from peers.
Sponsor is presenting their offer/product in an business oriented way and not focusing on selling something.
It's very good to build relationship and partnership with providers.
Thanks !

Very interesting and insightful, useful to know that such technology is out there and is something that we could look to investigate in the future as my organisation grows and matures its security capabilities. 

Good audience, knowledgeable and great company!

An interesting subject (machine learning as applied to security anomaly detection), without too much of a hard sell – product specific but generic enough.

The key to the success of these events are the other CISO’s. We get a frank discussion covering issues without any self-serving aggrandisement by the participants. My opinion has been changed as a result of these discussions.

Excellent location.
Excellent food.

The presentation for the lawyer was very interesting in what was discussed about the requirements for GDPR.

The vendor presentation was also interesting at positioning their product although it would have been interesting to hear how they differentiate themselves from SkyHigh as many of the larger organisations around the table are using this competitive technology.

Executive Director
Financial Organisation

Great event with good conversation and debate. Learned about an interesting product which may fit into our future strategy.

Executive Director

A very pleasant evening, supported by useful and informed discussion. An excellent opportunity to network.

The sponsors presented a relevant solution which I will explore further.

Head of Information Security 
Financial Organisation

An excellent evening of discussion around some of the most pressing topics for CISOs.

There was no hard sales pitch, but a well thought through and obvious segway from legal and regulatory requirements into the capabilities of a product that helps reduce the risks and helps businesses meet their obligations.

The host was both entertaining and engaging, ensuring all views were aired.

A totally enjoyable and interesting evening in fantastic surroundings steeped in British Political history.  The debate on GDPR and in particular the definition of “State of the Art” was intriguing and informative.  There was a great mixture of industries represented providing a wide spectrum of opinion and experience.  The event benefitted from superlative facilitation by Iain Sutherland and as usual he ensured that all were heard.

A truly memorable evening

Head of Information Security
Sky UK

Really interesting ideas, and somewhat challenging, which is good - we all need to challenge and be challenged in our current thinking to ensure that we do not miss when things have changed.  

Group Risk Manager
eCommerce Organisation

Thank you very much for an enlightening and very interesting dinner.   The company was excellent and provided fascinating insights during the presentations and in the discussions later in the evening.   Chris Knowles’ and Duncan Brown’s presentations were both interesting and educational, providing excellent opportunities for question and answer.   They complemented each other very well, entertaining their audience, as well as encouraging audience participation.

Interesting debate – as is often the case, I can see what we should be doing, and how it would improve our security posture, but the next morning reality sets back in and I remember that I can’t make it happen in my organisation!

Thoroughly enjoyed the informative presentations, I learned so much about a product that hitherto I knew very little about. The QA and debate sessions worked very well, it provided an excellent opportunity for us all to question and consider how the product would ‘fit’ with our own individual cyber security strategic plans. Super venue and environment which encouraged all participants to fully engage with our host.

I thought it was one of the best events I have attended.

The subject was right on topic and presented by a complete professional. I thought the evening was a great use of my time and thanks to the organisers.

An enjoyable and informative evening with peers and the sponsor. 
One of the benefits for me was the opportunity to learn from the experiences of the other organisations represented especially relating to the implementation of the Sponsor’s product.

Director Information Security & Cyber Operations

An interesting and lively debate with sponsors existing and potential customers attending. 
The different perspectives from the various business sectors represented and geographical  areas of operations was particularly enlightening. 
Behavioural analytics is a fascinating subject.

It turned out that the vendor had addressed a problem which we are facing that our existing solution is unable to address.

Thanks for the invite, it was an enlightening and very enjoyable event and I found the IRM presentation very interesting. It was provided a great opportunity for networking with peers.

Head of IT Risk & Security
Business Services Organisation

Excellent location.

Excellent food.

Vendor presentations were well balanced as they described what they did / offered and then they had a client success story to help us to understand how it had been implemented in practice.

The debating session worked well as everyone participated and we had representation from a broad cross section of industries so there was a lot of different viewpoints / experiences.

Executive Director

Good articulation of the data challenges and the opportunity of the product set that IRM have along with the real world testimonial from the CISO Guest Speaker's experience

Discussion on the management of cryptographic keys and digital certificates was interesting and helped me understand some common issues and real world context. 

Director IT Security, Risk & Governance
Financial Organisation

Overall an interesting subject, which seemed to create a divide within the attendees. 

I can see the business benefit of solutions,  such as that provided by Venafi, though the initial challenge seemed to be more around discovering how many certificates were in use as opposed to how they were managed.

Worthwhile following up with them, as long as they do provide answers to the key questions that were raised.

Great discussion & dinner.  Although we are deploying SkyBox, I learned of some functionality that I was previously unaware of.  I think a few people may have had the impression that SkyBox does the actual scanning for vulnerabilities (which it does not).  Great and timely product to bring a bit of order with the mountains of information coming in from various sources.

Please thank the sponsor for the great meal as well.

Executive Director, IT Risk & Information Security
Financial Organisation

 

I thought the evening was excellent and achieved the high standards set for these dinners.

The topic was very timely for me as Maersk are looking at ways to improve the ‘intelligence and resilience’ of our infrastructure.

The presentation was thought provoking and informative.

The open debate and hearing other leaders contributions was extremely useful.

I was delighted with the venue and food.

Thanks to SKYBOX Security for hosting the event.

Global Information Security Officer

The evening was a source of lively discussion initiated by the sponsor, which prompted an informative and informed debate. 

Once more this was a valuable opportunity to mix with my peers and discuss ‘hot topics’ and learn from their experiences.
