In a world where digitalisation and connectivity are paramount, CISOs need to tackle new frontiers, reinventing their legacy cyber security frameworks as they go. A global economy has meant that CISOs need to ensure they can meet ever-changing, overlapping regulatory standards, and comply and protect their businesses in the best way they can.
CISOs are experiencing higher demands in these evolving environments, where they collaborate with new stakeholders, from engineering team to the CEO. Cybersecurity is no longer just an issue to be dealt with by the IT experts, as Board members now recognise the impact of security across the wider business.
Businesses adjusting to the future of WFH has meant CISOs particularly focusing on mitigating human error. There has never been a better time to increase long-term awareness, by shifting from the conventional ways to more creative training programs, maintaining employee visibility through innovative technology for the monitoring and enhancement of security networks.
The Benelux Information Security Network enables CISOs, from the largest organisations in the Benelux region, to discuss their current challenges, collaborate and share their experiences to maximise their security defence.
With the disruption to businesses during Covid-19, CISOs have had to adapt to new challenges. Hackers and their tactics have become more sophisticated and aggressive, with supply-chains being targeted, and with phishing emails being commonplace. Not only are CISOs having to adopt ways to strengthen security networks used at home but are having to consider long-term strategies to ensure employees are more security-minded so that security breaches can be swiftly isolated and rectified.
A shortage of skills in the IT department is often a problem that CISOs face, but there have been positive developments following transitions in ways of working. A more flexible working environment provides huge opportunities for recruiting and retaining future generations of cyber leaders.
CISOs representing many industries will gather in the Novotel hotel, Amsterdam to share their experiences and plans for dealing with challenges and mitigating risks in 2021 and beyond.
