We Are CISO Crowd
CISO Crowd (aka 'The Crowd') is an unique and exclusive community of information security professionals nearing 500 members, who come together across a variety of public and private sector organisations to connect and collaborate with each other to drive success within a challenging industry.
We offer 'Crowd' members the exclusive opportunity to connect with peers to exchange best practice knowledge, learn about business techniques of
like-minded professionals and maintain alignment with the latest industry developments.
We bring together the UK’s top IT and IT Security leaders in unique informal settings, allowing you to make valuable connections whilst enjoying exclusive venues including restaurants, hotels, special event locations and virtual events via the Zoom platform.
Our informal executive panel events are free of charge and follow a programme of relevant talks combined with plenty of discussion time, which are designed to help you increase your professional networks, create opportunities and build partnerships.
We partner with the industry's leading security solution providers by following a strictly ' no sales' approach. Instead we work to raise awareness and spark interest around resellers/vendor solutions to challenges being faced within the industry.
Attendance is via strict invitation only and directed toward CIOs, CISOs, CTOs and other industry leading executives.
*membership requests are verified to ensure the integrity of the Crowd is maintained, and adherence to our strict no sales or recruitment professionals policy is followed.
What our Members Say
"It was really good to have open conversations with the sponsors and peers.
I found it really valuable in terms of helping to trigger new thought processes.
Everyone across the industry has the same problems to face so it’s good to converse on that.
It was a good group of people and I really enjoyed the format because it kept everyone engaged.
I like that way the moderator included everyone and we all had a chance to contribute in the discussions."
“The CISO Crowd event I attended was really refreshing as there weren’t any sales presentations.
I really appreciated the opportunity to build my relationships with the sponsor and network with peers in a relaxed and informal environment”.
It was a fantastic opportunity to collaborate, share knowledge and exchange contact details with others.
The event was great because it was different to anything I’ve attended before – it was exciting and fun!
Dinners can be boring and often the mingling and chat feels forced and restrictive if you’re sat at a table with the same people the entire evening. I’d much prefer to be outside doing something fun!”
“I really appreciated that the sponsor didn’t go in with a heavy sales approach and there was a really good balance between technical talk and informal chit chat about day to day topics. Some of the events I’ve attended recently have become quite stale so it was great to do something unique. Plus the venue was impressive”.
“I really gained a lot of value from chatting to the sponsor and making connections with new people outside of my industry. A very well organised event and fabulous venue”.
What our Partners Say
"CISO Crowd delivered an exceptional event providing Cybereason unparalleled access to key decision makers and influences in some of the largest organisations in the UK. It was the perfect opportunity to network and build relationships with key decision-makers from our target accounts, something other companies have failed to deliver. We have already seen a number of opportunities move into our pipeline and look forward to closing these out over the next couple of months. I’m looking forward to the next event which we will be arranging in due course".
"CISO Crowd have been outstanding from start to finish. Our Virtual Wine Tasting Event was engaging, informative and not to mention great fun. We continue to learn more about our industry and it was great to connect with like-minded professionals in the cyber security space. All of us in the Core to Cloud team are very much looking forward to our next event".
"Thank you CISO Crowd for organising such an excellent event! It was a great informal opportunity to build relationships with a relevant calibre of new clients".
