A Dedicated Session for CISOs at Cisco Live 2019

December 20, 2018

January 17, 2019 Update: Registrations for CISO Day are now closed. Please visit our Security Track page here to learn about our security sessions and other events at Cisco Live Barcelona



87% of companies across Europe, Middle East and Africa admitted they have suffered a cyber attack in the past year, 48% of them resulting in damage over $500,000.  This is one of the findings from the Cisco Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, research that involved more than 3,600 security professionals from across 26 countries.

To help CISOs  increase the effectiveness of their security posture, decrease the time to threat detection and remediation and evolve their cyber security organisation into a growth enabler, Cisco will again host a Cyber Security Day at Cisco Live, with a session dedicated to CISOs (Chief Information Security Officers).  The session will discuss CISOs’ challenges and business needs and demonstrate how Cisco is uniquely able to partner with them to make cyber security an effective business enabler within their organisations.  It will also include a customer CISO presentation and details of how Cisco protects its data, customers and employees against breaches.
