Think Tank - 10:05 am - 10:30 am

It's impossible to run a successful business operation without mitigating cybersecurity risks. Yet, all too often in security, practitioners find that walking a fine line between business needs and aligning security requirements is very challenging. Security is obviously a technical field, but its priorities and objectives must closely align with the business's goals to be valuable. It is no longer enough for a CISO to be a technical expert; now this individual must have the necessary business acumen and experience to have higher-level conversations with their boards and executive teams.

  2. Be thought of as a trusted agent by the core executives of the business.
  3. Help security leaders find new ways to better align with business colleagues
