Our Promise To Our Members


We are singularly focused on one thing: the facilitation of a collaborative forum that allows like-minded individuals to openly share information that will collectively make us stronger, and better equipped to protect our enterprises from those seeking to damage them. Created purposely without a larger “corporate” partnership or agenda, we offer complete independence from any “corporate” priorities like data use or product development.


  • Powered by passion to improve all CISOs
  • A safe haven for all of our data
  • A source of strength for the Cybersecurity community
  • A confidential place where organizations can share skills and experiences
  • A catalyst for peers of CISOs working with their peers in the community

Our Principles of Operations

Confidentiality

Member data is member data. We will not reuse or resell any data for other research or other analysis purposes other than what was intended. Upon a Change of Control, we will return or destroy all created member output, contributed member data, and all derivative works containing member data.

Trust

We have a zero-tolerance policy for anyone who participates in the community that inappropriately shares or discloses other member’s data or their experiences/opinions that have been shared without their consent.

Contribution

We will foster an environment where all members over time will share within the community at an appropriate level of equal participation.

Our Oath to the CISO Community

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
- Gandhi -

The connection between all organizations when it comes to Cyber Security is clear. We are all under attack. Digital transformation is embedding technology into the fabric of our lives. Typically, these technologies are meant to improve business or assist users, but one key element is often overlooked: We are all connected, and the exploits that take advantage of technological vulnerabilities will increasingly impact the well-being of almost everyone in our society. Knowing this, it is incumbent upon all of us to properly shape the way we design, develop, and implement these digital transformations to best manage and mitigate the information security, privacy, and other risks that are being generated. To do that, we need a trusted community where we can work on solving these problems together.

The World Economic Forum 2017 Global Risk Report listed Cyber Dependence in its top five risk trends, just below climate change and polarization of societies. It also indicated that "…technology is a source of disruption and polarization." At the Cybersecurity Collaborative, we believe technology is a tremendous opportunity for economic and societal benefit. We believe that technology can connect and enrich people's lives− if done correctly with the right security, and safety implemented.

The 2017 Edelman Trust report, published recently, agreed that “we have a trust collapse,” adding, “We have moved beyond the point of trust being simply a key factor in product purchase or selection of employment opportunity; it is now the deciding factor in whether a society can function…the onus is on business to prove that it is possible to act in the interest of shareholders and society.”

A growing digital economy relies on trust. CISOs are on the front line of these issues within their organizations and help provide the skills, resources, experience and time so no one needs to go it alone. As a community, we need to work together to find the best approaches to understand the risk dynamics of our employees, shareholders, customers, and society.  

At the collaborative, we want our members to not only survive these digital risks, we want to help them enable their organizations to thrive with the digital transformations occurring. We want tomorrow to be better than today, for everyone. We want them to trust and help each other without sharing any internal issues outside the membership of peers.
