CISOs face two battlefields, an external one and an internal one. The external battlefield is one we talk about all the time that is reported in the news daily from the external threat actors taking advantage of vulnerabilities within the enterprise. The internal battlefield is one of budgets, beuracracy, and behaviors that we also face. We will discuss these battlefields, we will also discuss the skills and character traits one needs to have in order to be a true CISO that can protect to enable people, data, and business.
