Unleashing the Modern CISO's Potential in 2023

The modern CISO must use every chance to fortify its organization's defenses. While many predict that the economy and economic activity would decrease in 2023, evil actors do not follow these cycles. With a probable slowdown in business activity, CISOs have an opportunity to build on existing programs and refine their communications in order to successfully convey security speak to management decision-makers. This panel of CISOs will discuss what lies ahead in 2023, as well as how to convey budget demands and the increasing threat environment to management.

The security roundtable will:
  • Examine the prospects for improving existing programs during a slowdown
  • Discuss effective communication with management decision-makers
  • Determine the obstacles to establishing and maintaining a successful security team
  • Discuss strategies for modern CISOs
