The Evolving Role of the CISO

Posting date:20 Aug 2019

The role of the CISO has been elevated with an influx of high-profile data breaches and an increased consciousness over the protection of data but how much do we truly understand the role of the Chief Information Security Officer and how seriously do smaller companies take their Cyber Security?

The introduction of GDPR, the spree of resignations from high-profile CEOs and the trillions of pounds lost to the British economy has created an amplified awareness for online security but while many have turned to outsourcing as a responsive measure, the majority of companies are failing to act defensively by neglecting their internal workforce and the detrimental impact they can have on business.

As it is claimed that in the region of 80% of data breaches come from inside of the workforce, we question if it’s time to place a greater focus on the Insider Threat and focus on prevention rather than cure.

In this white paper we present the importance of security education and explore the roles Human Resources and Security teams can play in counteracting the human-element of data breaches. We interview exceptional security professionals from across the UK who have ventured into the Cyber world from completely different career paths and discuss what the future holds for both CISOs and their workforce.
