Opening Panel: The Evolving Role of the CISO and Their Importance to the Business

The role of the CISO has matured and grown over the years. The CISO has a broader role than just to eliminate the threat. It’s also to deal with the crisis and the residual consequences. As CEOs and board directors adjust their thinking about cybersecurity, the executive to whom the CISO reports makes a world of difference.

Digital Transformation - Visibility and Compliance in a Transitional World

With an increasing pace of change and adoption of new technologies such as the Internet of Things, new platforms on which we deploy including public cloud, and new ways and places of working, brought about by the transitional and evolving nature of businesses, security visibility becomes ever-more critical, yet more challenging.

Gaining a clear understanding of IT infrastructure, hosts and critical applications, vulnerabilities to which they may be susceptible and the ability to demonstrate compliance against regulatory and organisational mandates is a task made more difficult by the transitional nature of business and underlying technologies. In this session, we look at some of those challenges and the changing response to adapt and regain visibility in order to respond timely to critical events such as Wannacry, and wide-ranging initiatives such as GDPR.

Words from our attendees
  • "Another concise, factual and easy to follow course. Presentation was very good.” - Margaret Wearing (ATT)

  • I thought the quality and mix of contributions and the engagement from the audience was excellent. 

    It felt more like an interactive team exercise in some respects, than a sit back and listen conference, and for me was more enjoyable and genuinely helpful for that. Similar folks, passionate about their brands and their work, but with different best practice to share – very collaborative, which I personally like.

    So all good and thanks for the chance to take part. It’s always a drain on time, which none of us have, but it was worth it.

  • Congratulations on a superb event! A well worked agenda with relevant content and an invaluable opportunity to meet with a senior audience in an environment as stunning and inspiring as the Celtic Manor.Throughout my esteemed career I have attended more events than I care to recall, but this one really stands for me as being amongst the best! I would like to thank the team at GBE for their diligence and commitment to creating a outstanding event from start to finish. Thanks

    - Shane Stowells - Sales Director, Tangoe
  • Having been a salesperson for over 20 years I have been to many networking events over the years and I have to say, this has got to be one of the best! It was well managed from the outset but the calibre of attendees was far superior and the timings of all meetings were kept. I would definitely recommend this event to anyone who is serious about networking and lead generation. Looking forward to the next one!

    - Greta Read - Business Development, Pickfords
