40 Ways for The CISO to Talk with The Board of Directors

Presented by

Todd Fitzgerald

About this talk

CISO’s in all industry verticals today are being asked to address their board of directors, and rightly so as cybersecurity should be a top 5 risk in any organization. What do you say? More importantly, what do they want to hear? This presentation leverages an analysis by the presenter of the many ideas promoted by large consulting firms to determine what is important for effective board interaction. Communicating with the board is a leadership style that will vary amongst CISOs. The “Style” factor is one of the ‘7-S Framework Applied to Cybersecurity Leadership’ factors (strategy, structure, systems, staff, skills, style, shared values) as detailed in the new book CISO COMPASS: Navigating Cybersecurity Leadership Challenges with Insights from Pioneers available at www.amazon.com/author/toddfitzgerald . This session will explore the Style component for the CISO to develop a successful program.
