The Roundtable Network
Transparent TRN Logo.png

The Roundtable Network ensures CISOs/CSOs are kept current on new cyber security solutions that are critical to securing their enterprise.

With >2,000 vendors in the space, our expert curation saves time, educates and de-risks technology investments. Incrementally, we collect and share, without attribution, valuable peer data that provides informal benchmarking and delivers golden nuggets that can sharpen your security program.

With new security startups popping up all the time, it is hard to filter through the noise to find the diamonds in the rough that warrant an investment of my time. The Roundtable Network has proved to be an excellent filtering mechanism where I am exposed to a select few startups that warrant a closer look.

How it works


Our delivery platform is personal and time-efficient. In a private, one-hour, one-on-one meeting, CISOs in the Network are educated on four to five game-changing security solutions each quarter. This exposure to startups is vital to increasing security, long-term planning and staying competitive.

With access to newly vetted information security solutions from trusted investors, peers and industry experts, CISOs get a view into how technology is evolving to meet their needs, and which companies are worthy of engagement.

There are no costs for any of The Roundtable Network services. If a CISO identifies a vendor as worthy of deeper review, the vendor compensates The Roundtable Network. It’s important to underscore that there is no monetization unless value is delivered. Additionally, the CISOs in the Network will often ask us to find a solution to a problem where vendor fatigue has set in.
