Deloitte CISO programme: Connect, support and lead by example

A space for security leaders to challenge themselves and explore their potential

The role of the CISO is more critical and demanding than ever, and effective leaders are in high demand. We understand this and have created a programme that is tailored to enhance your leadership skills and to help elevate your impact through experiential learning. It has been designed to promote discussion with peers internationally that provoke ideas and challenge your assumptions.

Our CISO programme aims to put the life of a cyber security leader into perspective, enabling you to lead by example, pursue growth and combat the challenges many cyber security leaders face in their world. The programme is international, widening your peer network while maintaining a local personalisation to suit your needs.

Why join our CISO programme?

You have the technical skills, but how do you apply these skills to the everyday situations generated by cyber risk? The CISO programme complements the CISO lifecycle with tools, experiences, international networks and learning opportunities to deal with the daily pressures posed by the role. The programme centres on five key components we believe to be the enablers of success in the Cyber world and beyond.

Our CISO programme is tailored to your needs:

Throughout the calendar year, you’ll have exclusive access to a variety of themed and industry-focused events that offer new insight, industry expertise and opportunity for discussion. The events will be centred around the five components of the programme: Build, Influence, Grow, Balance and Lead

Staying current has never been so important, these insights focus on you, your leadership and your career path, as well as topics to help maintain your technical credibility.

As a member of this community there’s opportunity to be nominated for one of our unique labs by your Deloitte contact. We facilitate transition labs, strategic thinking workshops and problem-solving greenhouses to develop your personal growth in role, within a team and across the wider organisation.

This programme provides a unique opportunity to establish new connections and relationships with peers from all industries across a variety of experience levels and countries.

You will also have access to programme initiatives which can also support and equip your team, as well as benefit wider society.
