How have you garnered insights from customers of competitors? Have you used panel providers, network connections or outsourced research services?

Top Answer: We do an annual survey of IT decision-makers in the market to get their perspectives on the state of cyber security and to understand their issues. We use a company to help us with that research, but our experts look over the data to come up with the themes. It helps us in many ways. 1) to understand the market, 2) it provides content for us to develop articles around and to pitch into media or post of social, 3) our customers find it useful to put in their businesses cases to justify services, 4) we are perceived as though leaders.

CISOs: what's something you know now that you wish you had known on your first day?

Would you be interested in a weekly newsletter from pulse that summarizes the week and shares key insights?

Top Answer: It would need to accept subject filters or sort order. Example , I’d like to get summary on ERP, Cloud, SaaS, but not desktop or mobile phone I think the best model would allow me a to select the order of the articles in the summary appear in. Sometimes I might be interested in mobile phone topics but not every time. In this manner I can read my ERP and Cloud information…. And if I have time continue down the newsletters. The newsletter might also allow to share some Gartner information that wasn’t in Peer Insights, but it’s shouldn’t be Gartner Ads

1. Do you know where your data is and is it secure? 2. Do you have a network security or information security team at your organization? What are your thoughts on the above questions?

Top Answer: 1.  Yes I know where my data is.  Do I know it's precise location in storage or network?  No.  But that's what you get when you use someone else's compute instances, i.e. cloud.  Do I need to know exactly where it is?  Not really.  Not when the hosting provider can have more protection for the money than you can.  As long as you can meet regulatory and legal requirements and protect access to your data then it should be ok.  I say should as bear in mind the change a hosting provider made that gave their engineers access to all data stored in their systems before quickly revoking it.  If you are a government, defence or a bank, you MAY want to have more control of where your data actually is. 2.  Yes, everybody does, even if you are a one man band, guess what, you are your security team and you'd better learn at least the basics or risk getting burned.

We're planning to open up the platform to go beyond IT to enable richer discussions and data. Which group of executives would you like to see on the platform next?

Top Answer: Extending to other groups of executives would only be effective if the reporting distinguishes amongst the responses from the various categories of respondents.

What are your concerns when outsourcing?

How can you get appointed to a Board of Directors? Share your experience and/or opinion.

Top Answer: Let me share my experience and what got me to the board. 1. Respect of the C-suite that I can add value to the enterprise beyond technology 2. Communication skills. Crisp, clear and to the point. 3. Acknowledgment from the IT industry as a business leader which came up in meetings of partners with the CEO 4. Engaging the Board regularly on various aspects of the industry and our business 5. Customer focus. Internal and external 6. Understanding of financials and ratios that matter to the company. 7. Networking. Beyond the companies where I worked my Board nomination and selection was due to recommendations from my network Hope this helps

What IT/Leadership communities are you a member of? How helpful do you find them? Any recommendations?

Top Answer: Gartner/Pulse, AWS Community Builders, private Twitter groups, private LinkedIn groups, other peer-to-peer groups that are scheduled/formal, and those which are informal. The communities and other peer-to-peer networking are critical for individuals, have been really helpful as more in-person events return to us.
