Topic: PRESENTATION & BOOK SIGNING EVENT – Build the Cybersecurity Program of Your Dreams: Using a Holistic 7-factor Approach
Security professionals and cybersecurity leaders (CISOs, senior security leaders) today are all in the hot seat to protect their organization from the next breach. The process is simple, 1) experience a breach, 2) hire a CISO, 3) build a team and stop the bleeding. Patch some stuff. Buy some tools. But wait, is there a better way? Did you forget something? How do you know? This session looks at 7 essential factors that must be managed well for the cybersecurity program to succeed. These 7 factors, used to ensure complete cybersecurity program coverage, are called the 7-S Framework Applied to Cybersecurity Leadership, and are detailed in the new book CISO COMPASS: Navigating Cybersecurity Leadership Challenges with Insights from Pioneers ( by the presenter.
