Joye Purser, Global Lead of Field Cybersecurity at Veritas Technologies LLC
About this talk
In a wild world of cybercrime, new tools to fight it, increasing complexity, and “alert fatigue,” it is no wonder that the average tenure of a corporate Chief Information Security Officer is two years. Over the past three years, businesses that sell technology products or services have experienced an acute pain point: wide-ranging questions about cybersecurity. Big Tech has led the way by creating the role of “Global Lead for Field Cybersecurity.”
In this presentation from STRONGER 2023, Joye Purser, CISSP, PhD, explained what “the field” means, why cybersecurity expertise is needed, and how the role can help businesses build trusting relationships with customers and their own workforce.
