NRF Cybersecurity Workshop

June 11, 2019 | 12:00pm - 4:15pm | Anaheim Convention Center



Retailers and other consumer-facing companies continue to face a variety of cyber threats that put their business operations and customer reputation – and ultimately their financial bottom line – at risk. Companies have made significant investments to address these risks in the last decade, but new threats continue to emerge and CISOs are increasingly tasked with new responsibilities, such as operational compliance with CCPA and GDPR, while operating with limited resources.

The NRF Cybersecurity Workshop, powered by PwC and the Aspen Institute’s Cybersecurity and Technology program, will provide an opportunity for retail sector CISOs and other senior leaders to engage collaboratively on how to address cyber privacy risks to the retail enterprise more effectively and efficiently.

For retailer full conference and retailer EXPO attendees with cyber roles, this program can be added to your on-site experience during the registration process. For questions, please contact
