Leadership and the CISO

What is unique about CISO leadership? Information security executives must protect their organization from ever-present antagonists with one hand, and with the other, enable business outcomes. With mandates that often conflict and a mission that can never fail, it takes a special knack to thrive as a CISO. What have your peers learned that can help you grow as a leader?

Join this session to discuss:

  • Common challenges unique to leadership as a CISO
  • Leadership best practices for gaining influence across the organization
  • The measures of a truly exceptional CISO
