Conversations with the Business: Articulating the Value of the Security Program

As CISOs, we understand that cyber security risk management is a cost of doing business. It is difficult for other business unit managers and executive leadership to understand the value of what we do to balance the needs of the business while minimizing threats which could disrupt critical processes. This requires the CISO to develop strategies to show how cyber security technology, personnel and processes provide value by increasing efficiency, reducing risk, and minimizing disruption.

This ISSA CISO Executive Forum will introduce you to various methods which cyber security leaders and risk managers incorporate as useful metrics to implement, track, and manage a successful information and cyber security program. We will discuss SOC operations, event management & incident response, vendor risk management, and vulnerability management. We will measure the value of a mature training and awareness program and investigate procurement and contract activities as well. Members and guests will participate on a discussion panel to discuss what works and what doesn’t.

Please invite other executives from your company to participate as guests and contribute to the event and discussion. We look forward to seeing you in Dallas!
