What Makes CISO Masterminds Different?

CISO Masterminds is a vetted community of cybersecurity executives. We come together two or three times each year at our summit events to explore the most salient topics and challenges facing cybersecurity leaders—with a level of focus that large conferences simply can’t achieve.

We keep CISO Masterminds events intentionally intimate, inviting only those who have served in leadership positions. At our events, they learn from keynote speakers, collaborate with their peers, expand their networks, develop leadership skills, and have fun!

“I would definitely make sure that any CISO who gets this invitation in the future would definitely be open to coming to this. I will be coming to this in
the future as well.”

Marc Helfman
Head of Cybersecurity

“What I like about this conference is the intimacy of it. It’s much more connected to people, and my peers, in different industries and exchanging ideas. I’d much prefer something like this than a large conference, such as an RSA conference, where you kind of get lost in the weeds and you have a lot of other events going on. This one is more focused on the topics at hand that are really facing our industry right now.”

Mark Fitzgerald
Investors Bank

“I really think this kind of session is much more beneficial than attending
industry conferences or vendor- sponsored conferences because we’re really interacting between all of us and sharing information, and that really doesn’t happen at other conferences. So, I’m really looking forward to being included in future CISO Masterminds events.”

Dotan Akvia
Chief Information & Security Officer
Certilman Balin

“I’m excited to connect with more people in the industry, forming new friendships, and basically being able to use those great experts as my resource. And I really look forward to coming back to the next one.”

What to expect from a CISO Masterminds event

Every CISO Masterminds event is an opportunity to learn, connect with industry experts, expand your network, and improve both your technical knowledge and leadership skills. 

You’ll learn during the day, attending keynote talks from leaders in the field and partaking in in-depth discussions where we pool our collective knowledge. Then you’ll enjoy fine dining and socializing in the evening, along with a fun excursion that highlights what our chosen location has to offer.

Meet the Founder

Jason Starr is the Senior Director of cybersecurity services for a top 10 accounting firm, where he drives success for the firm’s Managed Defense and Advisory Services divisions. After many years of attending large conferences that broadly targeted cybersecurity workers at all levels of expertise, he realized there was a gap in the industry.

“Many conferences have great speakers, vendor events often include fine dining and excursions, and many industry organizations have a community feel where leaders can feel safe sharing information and ideas,” says Jason. “However, very few are bringing this all together in a fun and exciting way that is tailored specifically for executives.”

CISO Masterminds is a one-of-a-kind event, carefully curated to build connections among seasoned cybersecurity professionals and leaders in the field.
