Abstract: The frequency, materiality, and impact of cybersecurity incidents is at a level that the business world has never seen before. CISOs are at the forefront of this. The speaker has experience with developing cybersecurity products and managing IT infrastructure and security from startup to massive scale. The talk will go through the roles, responsibilities, rewards, and perils, of being a CISO in a modern enterprise software company in these turbulent times. We will explore some hard problems that need to be solved for the good guys to continue winning.
