3211 - CISO Skill Set: The Tools and Techniques You Need to Succeed (Workshop)

Tuesday, September 26
1:45 PM - 4:00 PM

The purpose of this session is stretching the average life expectancy of the CISO beyond 2.1 years. Today’s CISO is a hybrid: part technician; part manager; part leader; and part visionary. This session will focus on the concrete skills those who believe they are CISO material will need to master. If you are a CISO, this session will give you tools to help you do your job better/cheaper/faster than the competition.

We’ll focus on: assessing the information security department’s operational readiness; skill sets; people, processes and technology; and communicating with upper management and your board. We’ll also take a hard look at what to do when things don’t go as planned.

Join us and learn to thrive, not just survive, as a CISO.

NOTE: In-conference workshops this year have limited seating and require preregistration. If you would like to attend a certain workshop, please register for it during your registration process. Attendees will be checked in at the door, and walk-ups may not be granted access if we reach room capacity.
