Organizations are increasingly establishing the role of the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). In fact, PwC’s Global Information Systems Security Survey finds that 42% of the surveyed organizations have established a CISO role. According to PwC Director Nalneesh Gaur, the CISO role is not a purely technology oriented role; instead it is a role where the function must foster relationships with both Business and Technology.
Additionally, CISOs must also think through how security is governed, what skills and talents they need, and how they interface with Business, especially in a large global company. Nalneesh is going to present on this topic at the IMF Security Forum on June 6th and 7th in Washington, D.C. He’ll focus on the specifics of designing a CISO operating model and what considerations come into play.
