A Closer Look at the Cybersecurity Studio
The Cybersecurity Studio is owned and operated by Chi Studios, which offers executive learning and development, C-suite executive briefings and initiative labs services. It is designed to "facilitate team-to-team collaboration that accelerates solutioning for the cybersecurity challenges of today and tomorrow," the company stated.
With the Cybersecurity Studio, CISOs and other cybersecurity leaders can access a neutral environment to share their experiences and look for ways to address security challenges, the company noted. The studio also provides cybersecurity playbooks, reports, roundtables and other tools and resources.
The Cybersecurity Studio does not currently offer a partner program for MSSPs and MSPs. However, the studio may look to develop and launch a channel partner program in the future.
