Transformational CISO East
Due to the success of our National Transformational CISO Assembly, The Millennium Alliance in partnership with our Advisory Board has launched Transformation CISO East. This exclusive Assembly will bring industry experts and the best solution providers to our CISO Members based on the East Coast.
With the instances of cyber attacks increasing, businesses of all sizes are working tirelessly to secure their networks, devices, and data. Fortune 500 organizations are especially vulnerable as they have big data pools and thousands of people who need access. CISOs need to plan for worst-case scenarios, stay ahead of the latest IT Security transformation technology, and maintain their company’s information assets, all without losing sight of the corporate culture
