How to Market to CISOs with 7-Eleven & T.E.N.

Today’s CISOs have an unprecedented amount of work and conflicting priorities on their plates, making it extremely difficult for anyone—let alone a vendor trying to sell them something—to grab their attention.  To understand how B2B cybersecurity marketers can reach these elusive decision makers, we talked with Sujeet Bambawale, CISO of 7-Eleven and Marci McCarthy, CEO and President of Tech Exec Networks (T.E.N.).
