Who would be a CISO today? The continually evolving threat landscape, the unintended consequences of emerging technology, and the growing pace of technological adoption present significant challenges to organisational resilience. Additionally, regulation and litigation raise questions about accountability and liability, with the CISO often feeling exposed. However, CISOs and their teams should not feel alone in managing the challenges. Boards must step up to the plate regarding cyber; CISOs can and must influence how they do so.

The SASIG annual CISO Roundtable will focus on the practical, emotional, and legal challenges CISOs face today and in the future, discuss ways to mitigate them, and explore how to better deal with the old chestnut of establishing an effective dialogue with the board. This popular annual event, once again so kindly hosted by Barclays, promises to be a melting pot of ideas, experiences, and solutions.
