Web Conference Overview:

An effective governance, risk and compliance framework is key to successfully managing a business-aligned information security program, especially in this age of cloud computing, BYOD, ever changing regulation, and the ballooning privacy concerns / debate.

There is increasing pressure for the CISO (or whatever the acronym your organization uses) to be more aligned to the business and compliance objectives of the organization and not so much the IT that might be used to protect key assets and sensitive data. This can mean the CISO "day” is more about satisfying the needs for business governance than specific IT risks – in other words, it is time to take the techie hat off and learn to talk business.

In this session, we will discuss aspects of how the roles of organizations' senior information security people might be changing and what the impact might be for everyone else concerned.
