8:50 AM Evolving Role and Reporting Structure of the CISO

Cyber security is just one responsibility of the CISO, with high profile data breaches in the new 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.  Explore how the CISO must be part technical guru along with psychologist and business leader.  The CISO must know the technology enough to protect the organization’s critical operations and data. The CISO must be able to justify security expenditures in business terms. The psychology helps with navigating motivations and priorities of the rest of the executive team. Changing regulations are also affecting the CISO’s reporting structure and the dynamics of the role
