CISO for Digital Business

The chief information security officer enables business leaders to make the right decisions

CISO must develop risk-based strategies to prompt business agility

The transformation to digital business adds complexity to the security ecosystem of an organization. To support the objectives of the CIO, security and risk management leaders need to develop processes that allow risk decisions while protecting the business.

95% of CIOs expect cybersecurity threats to get worse.
By proactively assessing risk appetite and the value of the desired business outcome, CIOs and chief information security officers (CISOs) can transform digital risk management into a competitive advantage.
