As companies of every size in every industry embrace mobile technologies and move to third-party cloud environments, the notion of “securing the perimeter” becomes obsolete. Amid these changing parameters and the proliferation of data, the role of the chief information security officer (CISO) has been elevated to one of growing strategic importance with management of a highly technical environment and more frequent interaction with the board of directors. In a world with increasingly complex and prevalent threats, organizations require leaders with a holistic view of the digital ecosystem who can balance the need for protection with the needs of the business.

New risks will continue to emerge, requiring sophisticated management of the data lifecycle to improve control and security in order to lower risk. The convergence of data, security, engineering and IT will undoubtedly have implications for cybersecurity leadership. As the role of the CISO continues to evolve, we strive to continue to help both leaders and organizations build the teams they need to address the threats and opportunities of today and tomorrow.
