Event Details



Digital transformation continues to reshape corporate value propositions and The White House just declared war on systemic cyber risk. Add to that, the SEC is about to release new rules governing cyber risk. This puts the corporate boardroom front and center in shaping and securing every company's digital future. 

On May 16 and 17, DOMINO '23 will bring together SEC leadership and over 150 of DDN's corporate director, CIO, and CISO members for a unique executive learning experience at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business to take a big step forward in helping America's digital and cybersecurity boardroom leaders navigate that journey.  

SEC Commissioner Jaime Lizárraga will kickoff DOMINO '23. Focused on the leading edge of digital and cyber security governance, DOMINO '23 convenes shortly after the SEC is scheduled to finalize its new rules on cyber risk. An executive learning experience, DOMINO '23 will cover the key issues related to advancing the practice and profession of digital and cyber risk oversight.

Join IT, cyber and boardroom leaders from Target, Disney, UPS, Softbank, Rent-A-Center, HP, Medtronic, Seagen, Campbell's, Newell Brands, Lindsay, and other companies whose leaders are at the forefront of shaping and securing their company's digital future.

We are also bringing together a group of Content Partners who share our vision for digital and cybersecurity governance including Proofpoint, White & Case, X-Analytics, Kudelski Security, Telos, TDI, ISC2, Corporate Board Member, and IDC. They will be instructing and offering their insights throughout the program. 

Registration is open for DDN QTE's and 502's and DDN Executive Members who have not yet completed the QTE 501 Boardroom Readiness Masterclass for Technology Executives who can also attend this renowned masterclass on May 15 before attending DOMINO '23. 

Practical, actionable, and insightful DOMINO '23 is a learning environment. What starts at DOMINO '23 will cascade throughout America's leading boardrooms and companies to safely shape their paths toward the digital future. 

Digital and cybersecurity governance starts at DOMINO '23.  

Please join us, and I look forward to seeing you!

DDN Founder and CEO
