IT Security Council

The IT Security Council is open to retail sector cybersecurity leaders and technical experts within NRF retail member companies who exchange information on current cyber threats and industry best practices. The goal of the council is to provide a platform for members to engage with industry, academic and government stakeholders on cybersecurity issues of specific interest to the retail sector.

Meetings

The council convenes virtually and meets in-person at Retail’s Big Show, held in New York City each January, and at the security-focused NRF PROTECT.

Eligibility

The NRF IT Security Council is open to cybersecurity leaders and technical experts within NRF retail member companies, such as CISOs, VPs, directors, senior managers in information security, IT, compliance and loss prevention, or at NRF’s discretion.

Cyber Resources

NRF Connect is an online discussion forum exclusively for council members to facilitate interaction on critical business challenges throughout the year. The ITSC channel can be accessed here.

Exclusive to NRF retail members, the NRF Cyber Risk Exchange provides cybersecurity leaders and stakeholders with a collaborative and intuitive platform tailored to the retail industry. This secure digital platform helps retailers to stay informed and defend against the latest cybersecurity threats.
