Southborough, MA March 13, 2018 – Based on overwhelming demand, a second Security Leadership Exchange has been scheduled for September 23-25, 2018 at Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass in Phoenix, AZ. This event follows in the footsteps of a positive reception by the CISO community of the inaugural Security Leadership Exchange scheduled for May 20-22 in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. The May event is near capacity with a limited number of seats still open for interested and qualified CISOs.

The Security Leadership Exchange Series is an invitation-only, hosted summit designed for Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and security industry leaders to address the unique needs of CISOs as integral members of the C-suite. As a strategic business forum, this summit is designed to provide insight and information to help evolve a CISO's role from technologist to strategist. The Security Leadership Exchange's unique approach allows for broad presentations regarding privacy and security, small group discussions with significant opportunities for networking and one-on-one conversations with peers on specific, targeted subjects.

May's Security Leadership Exchange welcomes CISOs from leading organizations such as AARP, Aetna, Aflac, Allergan, AXA Partners, Charter Communications, Comcast, Federal Reserve, Hearst, LexisNexis, Millicom Telecommunications, Nemours Foundation, NRG, Premise Health, RJW Barnabas Health, Rockwell Automation, WEX, United Technologies and more.

Sponsoring companies in the May event include Alert Enterprise, Conventus, Cybereason, CyberGRX, Darktrace, Digital Shadows, Glasswall Solutions, IBM, InteliSecure, Javelin Networks, Kenna Security, Malwarebytes, ManageEngine, Mimecast, Morphisec, NeuStar, NopSec, and Qualys.

With Spencer Mott, CISO, McKesson and Kurt Lieber, CISO, Aetna already announced to keynote in September, the event is shaping up to be another impactful and effective peer-to-peer platform for CISOs to collaborate and network.
"The ability to launch not just a single event, but instead create a series of events is a testament to the complementary strengths and capabilities of both MISTI and nGage Events to serve the CISO community," said Tony Keefe, President and CEO, MISTI.

"By combining the strength of MISTI's knowledge and relationships in the information security market with nGage's proven hosted buyer event expertise, the Security Leadership Exchange series offers the premier opportunity to help the CISO community evolve, network and engage with their peers," noted Phil McKay, President and CEO, nGage Events.
