Cyber: Dallas

Jan 19, 2023  – Granada Theater

We asked DFWs top Corporate CISOs to give us challenging cybersecurity issues and we’re having top VAR execs duke it out on stage in a raucous debate.

Tired of hearing the same ‘ol same ‘ol at cybersecurity conferences? Tired of being kissed up to or not being able to speak your mind in a proposal?

So are we.

Only 40 CISOs, 40 VARs and 5 Vendors may attend. Everyone gets to vote for the winners. No pressure.

Mayhem, indeed!
