What visibility gaps every CISO must fill or Does CISO really need to have visibility to their operations?

CISOs are held increasingly accountable by both regulators and management. Yet, more often than not, they are flying blind. Unlike in finance, sales or marketing, there are no mature data and metrics programs they can turn to, to comprehensively track and measure security performance. Manually-generated performance reports are resource-intensive and static. There is so much data available in cybersecurity but it gets bottlenecked in operations, as it needs to be analyzed and translated for management purposes. For data to be meaningful for management, a perspective on trends, accuracy, and actionable insights are required.

In this session we will discuss the gaps security leaders face today in order to gain full visibility into their security operations, as well as best practices and lessons from industry leaders to build the right infrastructure for visibility.
