secureCISO Toronto sponsors are on the edge of Enterprise Innovation


Interested in sponsoring CISO events?

Every year at secureCISO we explore directions from within the Office of the CISO; are these leaders detect or mitigate? Through these discussions, we're able to understand their direction and identify industry trends. By pairing our audience with a selection of industry innovators on the edge of product and solution development for the enterprise we're able to incubate true thought-leaders with actionable technology. From leading blue-chips like HP Security, IBM and Blackberry to newly funded start-ups this is where we gather the latest and greatest insight.

Day went smooth, organization was well done.  mobile app made it easy to navigate. Panel discussions were well done and informative.

- Economical Insurance


It was surprisingly informative. Talks and moderator were exceptional in their content and professionalism respectively.

- Kirkland Lake Gold


I enjoyed the vendor presentations and the networking segments. I benefited greatly from the pre-designate table changes, which encouraged people to intermingle more freely. I look forward to future events!


What happens when you wiretap 2 United States federal agencies?  In the case of the world-famous hacker, Bryan Seely... it's not what you'd expect.  In 2014 Bryan became the only person to ever wiretap the United States Secret Service and FBI.  Shockingly he told the 2 agencies before he was caught, and instead of being sent to a maximum-security prison, the Secret Service called him a hero and praised his courage and integrity.  Bryan's cybersecurity expertise has since caught the attention of Texas billionaire & Shark Tank star Mark Cuban among others and appeared on numerous media such as CNBC, CNN, and ABC. These are stories every InfoSec leader should hear as they battle to defend their enterprise, together we'll walk the line with Bryan at secureCISO.
