The World CIO 200 Grand Finale -Azerbaijan

I am thrilled to announce that I will be a speaker at the The World CIO 200 Grand Finale, the prestigious event that celebrates the achievements of the world’s top CIOs and CISOs

My session will focus on the Global CISO Forum, a platform for security leaders to collaborate and combat the threats posed by adversaries.

As CISOs, we need to collaborate with cybersecurity vendors to establish and maintain cyber transparency, and to urge them to be more accountable for their security features. The Global CISO Forum aims to make this a reality by fostering a network of security leaders who share best practices and insights.
