Solutions To A Cyber Crisis

In this episode of Life of a CISO, Dr. Eric Cole discusses why cybersecurity is the number one priority for organizations. In recent events, the importance of cybersecurity has grown due to the impacts of COVID. More importantly, a problem arises between the disconnection of what is happening and what people understand. The fundamental problem is organizations are filling chief information security officer positions with individuals who are not CISOs. Are you a business enabler, can you implement solutions to real-world problems, and are you a CISO? Cybersecurity is the highest priority for an organization today, and implementing someone qualified for the position is a critical step in building a foundation for protecting your organization.
