CISO Community

Join the CISO Community

The CISO Community Division is a forum where CISOs can network, share ideas, offer CISO support and learn from each other. It provides a primary, common destination for CISOs and security leaders to congregate and participate in strategic initiatives. We create content and organize events that cater to the interests of the CISO community and raise cybersecurity awareness more broadly.

Martin Kyle
CISO Division President

“The breadth of members in the Association provides a variety of perspectives. Being able to discuss challenges, to work together solving common problems, and to learn from others’ experiences helps us all guard against blind spots and improve security in our respective organizations across Canada.”
