As part of Infosecurity’s ‘Life of…’ series, this webinar will look at the role of the CISO.

Is the CISO a part of the board of directors, part of the IT team, part of the security team – or maybe a combination of all three? This webinar will examine the positioning of today’s CISO. 

In this session, speakers will consider the career path to becoming a CISO, discuss what the day job entails, advise on what certifications and qualifications you do (or do not) need and what the typical necessary skills are to hold down the job.

This roundtable webinar will bring together some leading CISOs to discuss these topics and to give a better understanding and insight into the life of a CISO. 

Key takeaways:

  • The common challenges a CISO faces: managing teams, hiring, dealing with the board, product acquisition
  • Who does the CISO report into? How are they hired and by who? 
  • Advice on how to become a CISO and tips for maximizing effectiveness in the role
