Southborough, MA November 10, 2017 – The Security Leadership Exchange will take place May 20-22, 2018 at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. The Security Leadership Exchange is an invitation-only, hosted summit designed for Chief Information Security Officers (CISO)s and security industry leaders to address the unique needs of CISOs as integral members of the C-suite. As a strategic business forum, this summit is designed to provide insight and information designed to help evolve a CISO's role from technologist to strategist.

With a focus on how senior security executives can maintain the agility necessary to balance between technical know-how and navigate the corporate boardroom in this era of unrelenting internal and external threats, the summit has already confirmed attendance commitments from 20+ CISOs representing a variety of industries. Confirmed participants include Wafaa Mamili, CISO, Eli Lily; David Hahn, VP of Corporate Information Security and Risk, Hearst Corporation; Michael Palmer, VP, CISO, National Football League; Jim Routh, CISO, Aetna; Daniel Conroy, CISO, United Technologies; Devon Bryan, EVP & CISO, the Federal Reserve and more.

With over 50 senior security leaders expected to attend, the Security Leadership Exchange's unique approach allows for broad presentations regarding privacy and security, small group discussions with significant opportunities for networking and one-on-one conversations with peers on specific, targeted subjects. A unique differentiator, delegates will be able to earn 6 CPE credits at the summit as an added benefit.

To date, IBM, CyberGRX, Digital Shadows, ManageEngine, Qualys, Javelin, Alert Enterprise, and Kenna Security have joined as sponsors wanting to provide CISOs strategic information and guidance as today's CISOs want to avoid having their organization be the latest news headline. "In today's security environment collaboration is essential to success. The Security Leadership Exchange gives us the opportunity to meet and discuss challenges with our peers across multiple industries," shared David Cass, Global Partner & Chief Information Security Officer Cloud and SaaS Operations, IBM.

Southborough, MA July 24, 2018 – MISTI and nGage Event's inaugural IT Security Leadership Exchange, which took place this past May in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, met the needs of the CISO community with phenomenal success for delegates and sponsors alike, with a sold-out vendor floor and 100% satisfaction from attending infosec leaders. Following on the heels of this high-demand event, a second Security Leadership Exchange has been announced for September 23-25, 2018 at Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass in Phoenix, AZ.

We know each other, we trust each other's opinions," commented Joey Johnson, CISO of Premise Health. "It's great to be able get all of us together in an area where we can talk openly and exchange ideas, ideas that we know can be sensitive. It's a collaborative experience that you only really get when you get people together in a single physical space. That's really powerful."
