with Dr. Eric Cole, World Renowned Cybersecurity Expert, CEO of Secure Anchor
The CISO has become an increasingly important figure in the last year. They have played a critical role in securely transitioning an entire workforce remote, while also managing an increasingly hostile threat landscape. Additionally, CISOs now must take on the responsibility of bridging the gap between IT security practitioners and the C-suite. So what does it take to become a world-class CISO in 2021?
In our May LinkedIn Live Event watch our guest Dr. Eric Cole, former special agent for the CIA and world-renowned cybersecurity expert, share his basic principles for how to position yourself into becoming a world-class CISO. Eric touches on:
1. The CISO's main responsibilities
2. Why the CISO role is not a technical career track for Security Engineers
3. Common mistakes made by CISOs
4. One question every CISO should know the answer to!
5. How to effectively communicate to executives
