Secure, Scalable, Agile: Business Drivers for the Modern CISO

Cascais, Portugal
Coverage: Europe

Threats to the business

Organizations face challenges from many directions and include threats to the business from state-sponsored cyberattacks, geopolitical turmoil, inflation, extreme weather conditions, and a shortage of security skills. The CISO must balance these threats with new approaches in continuous risk assessment, protecting digital assets, and managing the rapid pace of innovation in security technologies. For CISOs the new paradigms include cyber resilience, digital trust and data and digital sovereignty, and compliance with legal obligations.
Help is available from MSSPs, and new capabilities in AI-ML-enabled automation and better orchestration tools provide options to shore up the business' resilience in the face of disruption. Protecting critical business assets from breaches and attacks from cybercriminals is key to engendering trust and complying with new and emerging digital sovereignty rules. Ransomware, DDoS, and system intrusion attacks continue to rise as cybercriminals prospers. Given this complexity, what's on the mind of the CISO?
