The Ever-Changing Role of the CISO and the Future of Cybersecurity
Leadership during a crisis is crucial. The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is an essential and dynamic position that guides organizations towards safe IT operations in today’s digital workplaces. This webinar hosted a panel of expert CISOs from the public and private sector to discuss the changing role of the position and the future of these organizations in the virtual world.
Speakers explored the impact of COVID-19 on how organizations are assessing cyber risk, security, and workforce challenges, and the impact this has on the role of a CISO. They discussed ways to create more resilient organizations with better cyber hygiene in part through clear communication from leadership.
