Kākou is Hawaiian for inclusiveness. It means we are all in this together.
This is a new shared-trust, peer-invite only community for CIOs, CISOs, CTOs, and CxOs to engage in real-time connections, idea-sharing, inspiring knowledgeable conversations in a private and peer-vetted setting.
As the technology and cybersecurity communities grapple with an exponential rise in news and information on how this global pandemic is affecting enterprise security and technology processes across the globe, SPJGTM, Tony Scott, recently retired 4 star General Robert B. Brown and Maurice Stebila, CISO of Harman-Samsung saw the need for an exclusive forum.
A single platform for C-Suite technology leaders to collaborate, join forces and share ideas as they navigate through this fast-changing landscape.
Kākou CxO was built in 12 days and is 100% focused on connecting CxOs exclusively, with the goal to form a CxO-level community that can help each other through these most challenging times and beyond.
Kākou CxO facilitates C-Level multi-channel conversations and knowledge sharing through a single portal, bringing together security-focused digital channels found in:
- Live Zoom Meetings
Additionally, you will find experts immediately available to you through open Slack channels and discussion boards including:
Dion Hinchcliffe of Constellation Research, VP and Principal Analyst
CapGemini’s team of Cyber Architects
Squire Patton Boggs’ Cybersecurity & Privacy Practice to answer your privacy and protection questions.
Andrew Lewman, Leading Expert in the DarkWeb, for DarkWeb + CyberThreats
Maurice Stebila, CISO of Harman-Samsung curator of Cyber CxO 911 page
Lucian Fogoros, Co-Founder of IIoT World, for Industrial IoT (IIoT)
Claus Hetting, CEO & Chairman of Wi-FiNOW for Wifi & 5G
Andrew Wolfe, CEO and Software Architecture Expert, Skiplist
There is no fee, future vendor participation will be only agreed via our Kapuna vendor committee made up of a board of CxO Kapuna members. It is open for you, but also private to only the community registered. You will not get a single email, phone call, text or direct mail from a vendor.
We only ask that you participate. Everyone involved has donated their time to launch this for you. That said, its success is also with you. So, if you are a CxO, we need you.
If you’re a C-Suite Leader concerned with keeping your company turned-on, employees at work and security missions moving forward, please join this community - your experience and insight will only make Kākou CxO stronger.
