What Is the Future for the CISO?

Learning Objectives

As the digitisation of business charges forward, so too does the importance and need to be able to ‘lockdown’ these increasingly digitised systems. Technology is no longer just the business enabler it was once described as but is in fact the business. Businesses are experiencing an information explosion, which is not realistically set to abate in the next decade. However, many organisations have an information security policy, but not robust enough information management processes and matching policies in place. So, what does the future hold for current and aspiring CISOs?

Key Takeaways:

  • The growing skills gap

  • Capitalising on post-pandemic step up in responsibilities

  • The ethical responsibilities of the CISO around increasingly AI and machine learning adoption

  • Moving towards networked security approach
