Background about CISO
In the past, it was commonplace for the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) of an organization to be an extremely technically competent individual who has held various positions within an enterprise security function or may even come from a networking or systems background.
Today’s CISO is required to be much more than technically competent. The modern CISO must have a diversified set of skills in order to successfully dispatch their duties and establish the appropriate level of security and security investment for their organizations.
In corporations, the trend is for CISOs to have strong business acumen as well as technology knowledge. CISOs are often in high demand and compensation is comparable to other C-level positions because the significance of information security governance, risk management, compliance, and privacy to organizations of all kinds has increase dramatically over the past several years. Having a CISO in the organization has become a standard practice in business, government, and non-profit sectors and the demand for trained and certified information security leaders is only growing.
Objective of the program:
This event was held to produced modern CISOs in Indonesia who are able to function both as business leaders as well as security leaders.
