2024 Session
Fiesta 7/8
11:15 am - 12 pm, Monday, September 23
To the Boardroom, & BEYOND! - Transitioning CISOs to a Brighter Future

Session Abstract: It has been a rough year for CISOs. We have witnessed watershed moments of the SEC’s Final Disclosure Rules for material security incidents, CISOs becoming targets of litigation by regulators, not to mention targets of extortion by bad actors ramping up threats of physical violence. CISOs everywhere are looking for new jobs at the same time there is a conspicuous and crushing lack of cybersecurity expertise at the highest levels of corporate governance. The next chapter of data protection is transforming Boards into a critical security control and transitioning CISOs to the board room to produce better outcomes for stakeholders.

Summary: BoD members frequently report that they wish they better understood cybersecurity. CISOs often report they have limited to non-existent exposure to the BoD. This presentation will help bridge the gap from both sides.
