security & risk

accelerator focus:

Members share successful practices regarding risk management and IT, cyber, and information security as part of the overall business strategy including processes they use to achieve a balanced approach to investment.


Founded in 2012, the Security & Risk Accelerator welcomes security leaders from complex, global companies where IT security is a critical part of corporate strategy, and who are in the process of rethinking and reshaping how they approach IT security.
