Keynote - What is the Future of the CISO Role?

For many CISOs, developing a team which can keep pace with the ever-shifting demands of organisations along the whole supply chain, and stay informed, aware, and prepared to take on the newest threats is a concern which seems to have no easy resolution. Here from an experienced CISO on:

  • Why the CISO role is changing and how this is shaping teams
  • What skills will future security teams need to hold back the maelstrom of threats, as well as spotting and patching every vulnerability
  • How to implement and develop a new culture where security is at the foundation of each task

Panel Discussion – Furthering Diversity in Security

After years of calls for change and progress, ‘diversity’ can feel as though it is becoming a buzzword rather than a target. However, for organisations who are making roles more accessible to those who previously would have been overlooked are reaping the rewards. Cybersecurity is one area of any organisation which can benefit from expanding its hiring pool and desired skill set. Hear from an expert panel on:

  • What motivated their organisation to adopt diversity principles – image or conscience?
  • How they refined their hiring process to make the role more appealing and accessible to candidates from outside the traditional hiring pool
  • What are the key draws and benefits of increasing ethnic, gender, socio-economic, and neuro diversity of your security teams?
