What InfoSec Leaders Say

They love it. Read what the previous attendees had to say!


I was fully satisfied. The highlight, for me, was the presentation and Q&A With Hector Monsegur. Honestly, I wasn't expecting to get any value from that, but I took notes on a number of topics that he discussed.

It was a good event, keep up the great work.

CIOgala Minneapolis sponsors are on the edge of Enterprise Innovation


Every year at CXOsync we explore directions from within the Office of the CIO; what are these strategists planning and what paths are they taking? Through these discussions we're able to understand their paths and identify industry trends. By pairing our audience with a selection of industry innovators on edge of product and solution development for the enterprise we're able to incubate true thought-leaders with actionable technology. From leading blue-chips like IBM, Microsoft and CISCO to newly funded start-ups this is where we gather the latest and greatest.
