Hedonism Wines

Sip Back and Relax!

You know that you can “sip back and relax” with a glass of wine if your security posture is being constantly monitored, assessed and validated.  That is why we’ve teamed up with our partner Cymulate, a Gartner Cool Vendor and leader in Extended Security Posture Management (XSPM), to deliver a sommelier-led virtual wine tasting and industry roundtable experience.

If you currently need to know, control and assure the security posture of your organization, this session is for you!

What should you expect

Led by an experienced sommelier, this tasting will expand your understanding of French wine from an award-winning fine wine specialist.  Each guest will receive a personal champagne and wine tasting kit along with other wine-related goodies.

On the day, the sommelier will take you through a tasting experience using the wines provided. He’ll show tips and tricks of wine tasting, cover the delicious tasting notes and personality of each wine, and provide a fascinating insight into the region, grapes and wine houses selected.

Our expert sommelier has hand picked a range of exclusive boutique French champagne and wines from the cellars of the award-winning Hedonist Wines in Mayfair.

What about Continuous Security Optimization?

The tasting session will include a brief look at a Continuous Security Optimization Framework.

We will discuss why CIOs and CISOs need to constantly re-evaluate which elements of their cybersecurity solution stack they should keep, replace, or eliminate.

Organisations need to accurately evaluate their levels of risk, create a baseline and trend it over time. In doing so, they will reach and remain in the sweet spot between security requirements and operational efficacy.

A unique opportunity to network with other Security, IT Ops and Risk Management leaders whilst sampling a delicious range of wines - from the comfort of your own home or office!
