The networking aspect of the conference in catching up with ex-colleagues and friends which I have not seen in a while and seeing what others in similar roles are doing, what the latest issues being experienced are and in some cases learning how others are attempting to overcome issues being faced.

The conference was great and what I liked is that it was not a sales pitch for vendors.

I went to CISO 2019 looking to get more info about how POPIA and GDPR will impact our organization. I left with a whole lot more. New business contacts and a wealth of practical knowledge that point me in the right direction to implement an effective GRC strategy in my organization.

Key take-aways: How CISOs need to understand business strategy and IT strategy in order to derive to an effective risk strategy. It was also interesting to see how different CISOs implement security awareness in different organisation and how each CISO is placed within business organograms.
