About Us

Serving chief information officers and other IT leaders, CIO.com, CIO magazine, CIO Executive Programs, CIO Custom Solutions Group and the CIO Executive Council are produced by CXO Media, an award-winning business unit of International Data Group. CXO Media also produces sister publications CSO magazine and CSOonline.com, for chief security officers and other security executives.

Starting in 1987 with CIO magazine, CIO's portfolio of properties has grown to provide technology and business leaders with insight and analysis on information technology trends and a keen understanding of IT's role in achieving business goals. The magazine and website have received more than 160 awards to date, including two Grand Neal Awards from the Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Awards and two National Magazine of the Year awards from the American Society of Publication Editors.

CIO Executive Programs creates face-to-face conferences and events that attract IT's best and brightest. These educational forums and networking resources are trusted by senior IT executives because we know and understand the executive IT community better than any other IT resource. See our upcoming event schedule.

The CIO Executive Council is a paid membership organization composed of several hundred of the world's leading chief information officers. This community of like-minded CIOs retains a local focus with peer networking and initiatives on regional or industry-specific matters. At the same time, its global reach provides twice the benefit for members: focus on regional issues coupled with the support, contributions, influence and reach of a powerful global community.
