The Chief Information Security Officers (CISO) Advisory Councils provide a trusted forum whereby Federal CISOs collaboratively address cyber security issues and challenges, and share expertise regarding the implementation of key cybersecurity capabilities in their respective enterprises. The Advisory Councils also serve as a key channel for CISOs to be briefed on available DHS and Federal Network Security (FNS) cybersecurity service offerings. The mission of DHS’s FNS Branch is to improve the security posture of the Federal civilian enterprise, and this two-way dialogue serves to inform and share pertinent ideas with agency stakeholders and DHS alike.
Large and Small Agency CISO Advisory Councils meet on the third Thursday of every other month. Membership is reserved for Agency CISOs and their proxies (two representatives from each Federal agency). Meeting artifacts and other resources are stored on OMB MAX (https://max.omb.gov/community/display/DHS/CISO+Advisory+Council).
For more information on the CISO Advisory Councils contact Danny Toler of DHS Federal Network Resilience and Chairman of the CISO Advisory Councils.
