Driving Your Organization’s Security presented at CISOHouston 2013

by Matthew Harper, Cynthia Soares, Laura Mather,

Summary : As the threat landscape evolves to produce more high-profi le breaches, security concepts that are second nature to CISOs may be unclear or alarming to the rest of the business. This heightened focus may lead to several issues, including unrealistic expectations for the level of security an organization is expected to achieve, and a collection of reactive, cobbled-together “solutions” authorized by a well-intentioned executive team. In this boardroom session moderated by RSA, come prepared to discuss the challenges CISOs face when managing the expectations of senior leadership in order to drive security initiatives, and the proactive, intelligence focused approach required to prevent emotion-driven decisions.
