CSO Executive Dinners

Engage your most important clients, face-to-face.

CSO Executive Dinners are an opportunity to engage with leading security executives in an informal setting over dinner, and join the discussion that you have crafted in partnership with CSO. This dinner, hosted by CSO’s publisher, Bob Bragdon, is designed to leverage the best practices from our research to maximize the effectiveness of your interaction with clients and prospects. In addition to a face-to-face event, CSO will help keep the attendees engaged with your company after the dinner through a content-driven nurturing campaign.


Pipeline Dinner attendees are recruited from the CSO audience. They have an established relationship with our organization and know that their time will be well spent. You’ll get executive decision-makers with the purchase authority for your security solutions. After we have determined the content for the discussion, we will ask each attendee to answer two questions to help gauge their maturity and current stage in the buying cycle. This will help to determine the level of conversation as we head into the dinner.
