The CISO has never been so important. With cyber-attacks grabbing headlines around the world organisations are realising that they need to move from a reactive, fire-fighting mode, where cyber may be regarded as merely an IT issue, to a proactive stance so that boards stay ahead of and manage potentially devastating risks. CISOs need to drive a comprehensive cyber plan for managing people, capital and technology risks across the entire organisation by aligning and integrating the relevant functions – IT security, human resources, compliance and fraud prevention, and risk management – into a cohesive, cyber resilient business.
