Format

Traditionally events are held in Dublin, London, Paris, and New York every six to eight weeks, and once a year in Australia. One event has taken place at the RSA conference in San Francisco.  The annual Dublin event takes place over three days and invites members to participate in keynotes, brainstorming sessions, and panel discussions. The event provides members with excellent networking opportunities. Since 2020, many events have been virtualized and it is likely that this will continue for the foreseeable future, although the first hybrid and in-person events are planned for Q4 2021. Meetings are generally 90-120 minutes long and include short 15 minute keynotes followed by panel discussions. All attendees are encouraged to ask questions directly during the Q&A sessions or via the moderator.

Governance

The VigiTrust Global Advisory Board is chaired by Mathieu Gorge, CEO of VigiTrust, but operates as an independent non-commercial body. It is governed by a charter and requires chartered members to sign and adhere to the rules within that charter. Community members are asked to sign a consent form also stating the rules of engagement. The scale of the Global Advisory Board has resulted in the creation of a number of regional chapters, each with its own leadership team. Each team works directly with the Chairman to coordinate global events and also drive the regional agenda. Regional chapters include US East Coast, the US (other than East Coast), France, Ireland, UK, India, Africa, China, and APAC.

Independence

The VigiTrust Global Advisory Board was created by VigiTrust,  the commercial provider of VigiOne, a SaaS-based GRC/IRM solution with clients in over 120 countries. Being a member of the VigiTrust Global Advisory Board does not in any way mean that one is a member of the Board of VigiTrust or advising the directors and/or managers of VigiTrust on the company strategy. The VigiTrust Global Advisory Board is a non-commercial collaborative think tank. Full details are available in the charter and consent forms.
