The official Call for Presentations (speakers) for SecurityWeek’s 2024 CISO Forum, being held June 25 & 26, 2024 at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay is open. (Submit now)

Tips for Acceptance:

  • Present In-Person – Presenters must be available to present IN-PERSON and be able to travel to Half Moon Bay, CA (USA) for the conference which takes place on June 25-26, 2024.
  • End Users Only – The CISO Forum focuses on having strong representation from cybersecurity end users (practitioners) and CFP sessions will not be accepted from individuals representing cybersecurity vendors (sponsorships are available for interested vendors)
  • Be Original – Proposed talks should be original and not have been presented at other events. We are looking for new, innovative talks that have not been seen elsewhere.
  • Propose a Panel – Individuals may submit ideas/topics for a panel discussion in either a role as a moderator, or as a panelist.
  • Submit Early – By submitting early, you will have a better chance of being accepted, as submissions will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
  • Not a Sales Pitch – Sessions should be educational and NOT be a masked sales pitch. When attendees smell the faintest scent of a sales pitch, they immediately put up their guard and speakers lose creditability. Show you understand a problem or technical challenge, and help people learn. You’ll earn credibility and people will notice who you are and what you do.
  • Most sessions will be a mix of 30 and 45-minute talks including time for Q&A.

Submissions will be reviewed on an ongoing basis so early submission is highly encouraged.

Submissions must include proposed presentation title, an informative session abstract, including learning objectives for attendees if relevant; and contact information, headshot and bio for the proposed speaker.

All speakers must adhere to the 100% vendor neutral / no commercial policy of the conference. If speakers cannot respect this policy, they should not submit a proposal.

Accepted speakers will be provided with complimentary admission (full conference pass) to the CISO Forum and associated AI Risk Summit.
