2101785 - What to expect when you are expecting…. your CISO to leave.

Oct 11, 2022 10:35am ‐ Oct 11, 2022 11:35am


CISO turnover is higher than almost any other C-suite leader. The impact of the departure of cyber leaders is exacerbated by the lack of cybersecurity talent around the globe, the rate of change associated with the demands of the position and the stress related to the CISO position.

Avoiding potholes during the transition and selecting the right individual to run your cybersecurity team are both crucial. The key to a successful CISO transition is to avoid a hasty and reactive response. Instead, engage in a thoughtful and measured process that assesses cybersecurity business needs of the organization, articulates a clear understanding of the current and future state risk and threat profile, and delves into an honest evaluation of the reasons for the CISO turnover.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how to prepare for a CISO departure day.
  • Understand how to balance cybersecurity priorities with the need to have a CISO "right now."
  • Know the risks of the "next man up" approach to finding a new CISO.
