A new era for the CISO? IDC InfoBrief “The Modern Connected CISO”, sponsored by Capgemini, gives insight into the evolving role of the CISO and how organisations now perceive its value.
IDC new Infobrief shows a shift in both attitude and perception. Information Security is moving from being a necessary constraint to a business enabler and consequently a source of competitive advantage. Information Security is now recognised as fundamental to business success. The IDC survey also reveals that:
- 75% say the influence of the CISO has improved over the past three years
- 90% agree that the CISO is involved in significant business innovation or change decisions
Despite this new understanding of the value of cybersecurity to the business, fewer than 25% of Business Leaders view Information Security as a proactive enabler of digital transformation.
Your Information Security Roadmap
Register for our webinar scheduled for the 19th February at 3pm GMT. You will be presented with a roadmap for change.
Developed by IDC, the roadmap makes recommendations for new approaches and management processes, quick wins and tools for successful change underpinned by robust Information Security.
- Why CISOs can bring value by changing their role so that risk management becomes part of business initiatives and guides how they are implemented and presented;
- How organisations moving their pilot digital transformation initiatives to mainstream programs need CISOs to streamline and outsource both processes and administration to remove mundane activities and enable them to focus on business requirements.
Research Director, European Security at IDC, will explain that security and risk management should be part of all new initiatives, guiding both how they are implemented and how they are presented.
