The Modern CISO – CISO as an enabler to accelerate digital transformation and business growth
AGENDA OF THE EVENT
As customer data and digital transformation evolve and invite towards new forms of information theft. The leadership role of the chief information security officer must become stronger and more strategic—moving beyond the role of compliance monitor to help create an organizational culture of shared cyber risk ownership.
Monitoring, repelling, and responding to cyberthreats while meeting compliance requirements are well-established duties of CISOs, or their equivalents, and their teams. But the business landscape is rapidly evolving. This explosion of digitalizing provides companies new opportunities for business growth and product development—but these opportunities come with a catch: As customer data, digital transformation, and a bigger global setup, they become new targets for information theft, directly impacting shareholder value and business performance. In response, business leaders need CISOs to take a stronger and more strategic leadership role. Inherent to this new role is the imperative to move beyond the role of compliance monitors and enforcers to integrate better with the business, manage information risks more strategically, and work toward a culture of shared cyber risk ownership across the enterprise.
