CISOs, Tell It Like It Is – But in English
In this exclusive podcast series, “Take Back Control of Your Cybersecurity Now,” Paul Ferrillo and Christophe Veltsos share insights from their recently released book of the same name. By explaining top threats and cyber risks in plain language, Paul and Chris not only illustrate today’s perilous landscape, but also build a convincing case for why cybersecurity must be a key business priority.
To run a successful organization, all members of the C-suite must work together toward common business objectives. The chief information security officer (CISO) is a relatively new position, and in many organizations it may well be the most recent addition to the C-suite. That CISOs now have a place at the table is a big step in the right direction; however, when speaking to their C-Suite colleagues, too many CISOs still struggle to effectively communicate the challenges and threats they are facing.
The previous episode of this series highlighted the communications gap between CISOs and boards of directors. This week’s podcast takes on a related topic, exploring internal communications and how CISOs can improve their relationships with others members of the C-suite.
