Stress and the CISO — Practical Strategies to Mitigate Burnout

Today’s CISOs face daunting challenges. It is a balance between fighting off increasingly sophisticated attacks, managing scarce resources, and working with stakeholders that often don't understand the inevitability of a breach. Since there continues to be a knowledge gap about the criticality of the CISO’s role, it is no surprise that they’re experiencing stress and burnout at unprecedented rates. How can CISOs make their careers sustainable and maintain a sense of well-being?

Join this keynote to explore:

  • How to recognize the signs and symptoms of toxic stress and burnout
  • How to remain engaged, energized, and focused during turbulent times
  • Methods to reduce stress at work and how to not let the stress overlap into personal lives

In today’s business environment, organizations are held responsible for the actions of their suppliers, vendors and partners, in addition to their own internal activities. Knowledge and understanding of supplier and third-party risk is of the utmost importance to CISOs and the teams they support. Organizations must know their business well enough to understand where risks may materialize and employ processes to detect and react to their evolving risk from third parties.

Join this session to discuss:

  • How to create an accurate inventory of all vendors within your ecosystem
  • Strategies to establish a process for continuous assessment and monitoring of third parties
  • What to do when your third party gets breached

The Three Keys To Cybersecurity Transformation – Platform, People, and Process

The process of digital transformation improves business agility and information flow, but dramatically expands the attack surface and exposes your business to new threats. Your employees are on the internet now more than they are on the corporate network, accessing applications and data from everywhere. Protecting your business and retaining the benefits of digital transformation requires migrating to a zero trust security model delivered through the cloud, closer to where your users and business assets are now centered.

Join your peers for a session focused on:

  •  Building your security     ecosystem on a Zero Trust foundation
  •  Developing new skills and     embracing a new cultural mindset at all levels of the enterprise
  •  Defining the right tools to     empower your adoption of Zero Trust

What Matters Most for Your Security Operations

Since cybercriminals never rest, a sound SOC – staffed by the right people using the right tools in the right way – should be a key part of your cyber defense strategy. Whether your security operations program is completely in-house, outsourced, or operating in a hybrid model, you’ll want to measure its effectiveness. How do you think about measuring efficacy and how do these metrics feedback into your program to increase operational maturity over time?

In this session you will discuss:

  • Volume and trend metrics that speak to effectiveness; what does good look like?
  • How does automation come into play and how do you monitor what the robots are doing?
  • What impact does this have on hiring and ongoing job satisfaction?
