The idea of the CISO Roundtable is to bring your ideas, thoughts and questions to peers and speakers that you have met during the conference.

This is an intimate event of approximately 30 people held under Chatham House rule – you are free to discuss, take part or just to listen. However, it's good to know that the more you put into this event, the more you will take away. Notes will be taken throughout the discussions and provided to delegates after the event electronically

For more information about the event, please contact Mirjam Dudler at mh@open.ch or +41 58 100 10 10.
