Today’s world is more connected and changing faster than it was a decade ago. The benefits of digitalization and digital transformation are visible. But at the same time, complexities, vulnerabilities, and threats are increasing, with more and more devices connected to the internet, thus expanding the security landscape. The use of SAAS and other applications by departments without the knowledge of IT (shadow IT) increases the complexities of security. Due to the above factors and a massive surge in cyberattacks, the role of a CISO has evolved over the years from a function of IT to an enterprise-wide responsibility.
In this webinar, we will talk about the crucial first 90 days for a CISO in a new organization or after being elevated as a CISO in an existing organization. Planning is the key to success, and so this webinar talks about how CISOs should plan their first 90 days to ensure the setup of a robust security landscape for an organization.
- Roadmap for a CISO for the first 90 days.
- Key tips to sell CISO as a service to organizations and get a buy-in from stakeholders.
