What is the Role of a CISO in 2020?

  • TYPE: Keynote DATE: Tuesday, November 13, 2018 TIME: 16:40-17:00 LOCATION: Historische Kassenhalle
Conference Agenda

In the past years, a CISO would mainly be chosen among the IT staff who expressed his interest for information security or by arbitrarily promoting someone from the inside to please the auditors with filling a headcount gap. Tasks and skills were mainly technical, focusing on patching, administering firewalls and installing antiviruses. With the years though, companies have made their IT systems the backbone of their businesses. Similarly, criminality has shifted to exploit online systems. Combination of both realities now requires that CISOs possess and demonstrate core competencies that allow them transforming the essence of their job from infrastructure protector to business enabler. In this keynote, we will explore how and why CISOs should now focus on value creation instead of value protection, getting from a defensive to a proactive approach.
