The New Zealand chapter of CISO Lens was launched in February 2019.

The purpose of CISO Lens NZ is to empower and enable New Zealand CISOs through peer networking, structured collaboration, and benchmarking. The objective of empowering CISOs through collaboration is to make a substantial positive impact on the cyber resilience of New Zealand.

A key driver for the establishment of CISO Lens NZ was the recognition that collaboration between the security leaders of Australia and New Zealand is necessary to create a more resilient ecosystem for both countries.

CISO Lens and CISO Lens NZ are both environments where CISOs at all stages of their careers can come together and share better practices.
