11:35 AM True Security Partnerships- Speaking the Language of Business and Technology

Cyber security needs to be aligned with the business with accountability across the organization. Audit, risk, compliance, data, and privacy are all components of proactive security leadership. Leadership needs to be in the forefront - translating and communicating risk in a way that resonates with the business stakeholders. Cyber security is just one responsibility of the CISO, with high profile data breaches in the evolving regulatory era, communication with the board and the rest of the C-suite is paramount. CISOs must shape the message and methods to address unique organizational dynamics and instil security awareness as a part of corporate culture. Security needs to be seen as adding value not just meeting compliance requirements.

Join this session to learn:

  • Engaging, managing, and exceeding expectations
  • Top-down focus on risk management
  • Evolving roles of the CISO, CIRO, and CIOs
