M12 CISO Network formed to generate insights, analyze trends in cybersecurity investments

In November 2020, we announced the creation of the M12 Advisory Board, a group of world-class authorities in their respective fields, assembled to forecast what's on the horizon, provide guidance on investment opportunities, and coach portfolio companies on strategic direction. In addition to that important mentorship, we've had ambitions to collaborate more deeply with our advisors.

Today, I'm proud to partner with Ann Johnson -M12 cybersecurity advisor and Microsoft corporate vice president of security, compliance and identity business development-to announce our first milestone in that pursuit: the founding of the M12 CISO Network. Yesterday, we hosted our inaugural quarterly meeting of 15 top industry-leading CISOs, representing global enterprise and mid-market companies across professional services, financial services, healthcare, retail, food and beverage, energy and more.
