The Changing Face of the CISO

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 organizations 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 recognized 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 4pm CET. 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.

You’ll hear:

  • 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 organizations 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.

Martin Whitworth

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.
