T.E.N. & ISE® Sales and Marketing Breakfast at RSA® 2019



Why Relationships Matter: Best Practices for Connecting with Information Security Executives

In today’s cybersecurity-centric world, it’s no secret that CISOs are some of the busiest, most in-demand executives of all time, making appeals to the board for support and leading their teams through complex rollouts and management of their security programs. As well-funded cybersecurity programs have become a competitive and regulatory advantage in this era of security breaches and technological advancement, CISOs need to find the best security solutions that will help solve their enterprise’s unique challenges. In truth, most have little time to meet with vendors. Additionally, flashy emails, unsolicited cold calls, and other antiquated marketing tactics do not impress them and rarely lead to follow-up communications or meaningful interactions with vendors, let alone a sale. Most vendors believe that making the perfect pitch at the perfect time is the key to making a connection with CISOs, but the truth is much simpler yet also more complex: CISOs desire relationships with people they can trust. But how do you start building those relationships along with the trust that’s necessary to go along with them? What’s the best way for making introductions as timely and ethically as possible while also making the best first impression and to fast track your deal?

Find the answers to these important questions and more at T.E.N.’s ISE® Sales and Marketing Breakfast during the 2019 RSA® Conference. Our panel of executive thought leaders will share their real-world experiences and insights about Security Solutions Providers’ sales and marketing programs. Their candid views will give you an inside track to effectively marketing and selling solutions to the nation’s top IT and security executives.

Learn directly from leading industry CISOs about how to:

  • Make your messaging and brand stand out from the crowd
  • Best practices for building a highly effective field and event marketing program
  • Tips and techniques for building a relationship-oriented sales strategy
  • What marketing and sales tactics really work and which will fall flat or fail
