In past years, the job of the enterprise chief information security officer (CISO) was to establish and maintain a security perimeter around corporate data and a strategy for defending it. But today’s CISO is faced with a wide variety of new challenges that the security department has never seen before. While cloud computing, open source, distributed and outsourced software development, bring-your-own-device policies, and other initiatives create “shadow IT” environments that often take control out of the CISO’s hands, the steady barrage of high-volume, high-publicity security breaches in the headlines are putting unprecedented pressures on the CISO’s office. The reality is that today’s CISO is under more scrutiny than ever – including from the board – and yet, he/she has less control over the IT environment than ever before.
How should the CISO – indeed, the entire IT department – respond to these new challenges and pressures? In a special live videocast on Apr. 14, industry experts will discuss these very questions.
In this special videocast sponsored by Veracode and moderated by Dark Reading, two of the IT security industry’s best-known voices – Chris Wysopal, CTO & CISO of Veracode and Jim Nelms, CISO of The Mayo Clinic – will discuss the changing role of the CISO and how the importance of that role is growing within the organization.
You’ll get first-hand insights on the responsibilities and challenges assumed by today’s CISOs, and how today’s IT security departments are adapting to the new pressures being applied by new technology and attackers. You’ll also get some real-life advice on how your organization can respond to these challenges and how to explain your strategy and risk posture to business executives.
The world of IT security is changing, both for the CISO and for the business. If you want to get a first-hand viewpoint on what these changes may mean for your organization, register to watch this special videocast today!
