EC-Council Tightens Requirements to Present to and Attend the St. Louis CISO Summit

Share Article

The St. Louis CISO Summit, St. Louis, MO – June 3, 2013, will bring together Information Security executives from all over the country – but not just any presentation or attendee is allowed. Only speakers who can present something groundbreaking and new are being allowed to present and only high-level information security professionals are invited to attend.

St. Louis CISO Summit

We have had to turn people down, and that’s hard, but we don’t want this to be an event where we just re-hash old ideas.

Recognizing that there is a lot of competition for the information security audience, EC-Council is positioning their latest conference offering, the St. Louis CISO Summit, to stand out. “We are really looking to present something different and not let people who spend their time presenting the same slides over and over again at events around the country do that at our event” says Eric Lopez, EC-Council’s Conference Director. In order to be considered as a speaker or even to attend, interested professionals must submit their abstracts and resumes, which are approved or denied by a committee. So far, speakers from across the industry have made the cut – but not everyone who applies gets the thumbs up. Says Lopez “We have had to turn people down, and that’s hard, but we don’t want this to be an event where we just re-hash old ideas.” Only top level information security professionals are allowed to attend the event so that everyone feels they are among peers and can share information comfortably.

The content will be geared to an executive perspective with the goal of helping the information security guardians at the top of the food chain better protect their businesses and organizations from malicious attacks through strengthened policies, programs, and tools through a blend of keynotes and panel discussions. There will also be a live hacking demonstration designed to make the audience question the security of their systems. After the conference, there will be plenty of time for networking at the CISO cocktail reception held immediately following the conference.
