May 9, 2018 – May 10, 2018 HUTTON HOTEL NASHVILLE, TN
The Millennium Alliance is thrilled to present our bi-annual Transformational CISO Assembly, taking place this year on May 9-10, 2018 at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville, TN.
With the instances of cyber attacks increasing, businesses of all sizes are working tirelessly to secure their networks, devices, and data. Fortune 500 organizations are especially vulnerable as they have big data pools and thousands of people who need access. CISOs need to plan for worst-case scenarios, stay ahead of latest IT Security transformation technology, and maintain their company’s information assets, all without losing sight of the corporate culture.
