Dear friends,

CISOs Connect™ is going global in its commitment to finding new channels of professional development, taking the company to the next level with a first-ever trip abroad, to cybersecurity hotspot Israel.

A delegation of leading members of CISOs Connect™ will be joining me and CEO Aimee Rhodes on a weeklong trip where we’ll have unique access to companies and venture capitalists developing some of the most cutting-edge cybersecurity technology in the world.

We’ll also be attending one of the premier events in the cybersecurity world, Israel Cyber Week, which will be drawing thousands of attendees from more than 80 countries. Several of us will be addressing the conference, and we’ll be holding our signature Security Shark Tank® with some of Israel’s most compelling tech innovators.

I’m also honored to be providing our CISOs access to people like Uri Dromi, a confidant of legendary Israeli prime ministers who had a front row seat to some of the defining moments in the country’s history. 

To make this memorable trip even more so, the delegation will also be touring some of the sites that make Israel such a fascinating destination – Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and Tel Aviv, the epicenter of Israel’s tech world. 

It’s surely going to be a week of lifelong memories. Professional development and networking are crucial to our careers, and CISOs Connect™ offers programming and content that can’t be found elsewhere. This trip is further proof of our dedication to this mission.

We chose Israel as the site of our first expansion because it punches so far above its weight on the cybersecurity scene. We look forward to following up with additional moves in the coming year to expand our international reach by establishing footholds in Dubai, Australia and New Zealand.

It is our goal to make our community truly global, because information sharing and collaboration are so essential to our battle to protect organizations across the world.

David Cass
President, CISOs Connect™
