Topic:  So You Want to Be a CISO - Is It Worth IT?

The role of CISO (and cybersecurity) has changed dramatically over the past few years. It used to be “protect your perimeter, and all hands on deck to defend against invaders”. Now it’s more like “the company is probably breached somewhere, how do you keep the company operating safely...without getting fired...or sued...or both”. This discussion covers the top CISO priorities in 2024: data/privacy, 3rd-party risks, and personal liability.
