About this talk

Smaller businesses have a common problem when it comes to cybersecurity - limited expertise, resources and budget. The board is asking for, clients are demanding to know whether the company is secure, IT team can't articulate the cybersecurity program, because there isn't one. Cybersecurity is sometimes an afterthought for a start-up, or delegated to one engineer. There's a tendency to think of cybersecurity as a set of tactical, technical implementations to cover obvious threats rather than a business problem. We'll discuss the role of the CISO in terms of providing the leadership and strategy for a cohesive, risk based program. Ideally, the role is not a technician. With an ever-evolving threat landscape and a growing business, where does a business start to build and maintain an affordable program? We'll discuss a baseline program, technologies required, focusing on fewest technologies for maximum benefit. This episode is part of The (Security) Balancing Act series with Diana Kelley. Viewers are encouraged to ask questions during the live Q&A.
