SecureWorld, a media and events company dedicated to fostering growth, access, and excellence among cybersecurity professionals, is pleased to announce a partnership with Cyber Risk Opportunities (CRO) as our provider of choice for security training and cyber risk consulting services.

Kip_Boyle_22CRO Founder and CISO Kip Boyle will serve as an instructor for a series of SecureWorld PLUS training courses at our regional, in-person conferences. These are designed to give InfoSec practitioners a deep dive into relevant, timely topics that further their professional development and equip them in defending their organization's cyber posture. At each fall 2023 event, this course will cover the topic of "Implementing the NIST Cybersecurity Framework."

As a long-standing SecureWorld Advisory Council member, Boyle will also participate in roundtable discussions hosted at SecureWorld conferences. These invite-only, collaborative sessions afford security executives the opportunity for valuable information sharing and professional networking.

"Partnering with CRO is an exciting step forward for us and the professionals we serve," said Brad Graver, President of SecureWorld. "We are always looking for ways to expand resources for our audience. This collaboration allows the SecureWorld community access to a trusted advisor who has an established record of helping companies prioritize cyber risks and with business-oriented options."

Boyle added, "As a past attendee of SecureWorld conferences, and now PLUS course instructor, I'm looking forward to sharing what I've learned over the years as a cybersecurity practitioner with people who are eager to learn."

Since 2015, CRO has been helping to reduce its customers' cyber risk to stay in control of their digital assets and free them to move the needle on their business while letting the cybercriminals move on to a softer target. As trusted advisors, they provide regular access to the people, expertise, and tools that organizations need to manage the risks to their digital assets and enable growth and mission success. Boyle has also been the co-host of the popular and highly-rated Cyber Risk Management podcast for the past five years.

Through its network of industry experts, thought leaders, practitioners, and solution providers, SecureWorld collaborates to produce leading-edge, relevant content, which includes: in-person conferences across North America, executive roundtable dinners, virtual conferences focused on industry verticals and regions, educational webinars, and original news and analysis of the InfoSec world.
