Four Critical Skills Future CISOs Will Need

  1. 1. 1 FOUR CRITICAL SKILLS FUTURE CISOS WILL NEED A Dell Technologies Brand
  2. 2. 2 The ISACA’s 2016 State of Cyber Security report showed that 50 percent of the responding organizations had Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and in 2017, that had grown to 65 percent, with executive board support cited as a key influencing factor. The current technology, threat and compliance landscapes are forcing an evolution of the CISO’s role, with some expected and interesting developments. Here are the four critical skillsets that CISOs need to develop and strengthen to stay relevant and effective in their evolving role.
  3. 3. 3 1Communication Effectively describing and ideas to drive understanding, engagement and action is, in itself, vital for business success, but has not always been on the short list of desired skills for security execs: “Previously, security professionals just needed to make sure they kept the lights on, as long as it was business as usual there were no issues. But the dramatic change in the depth, breadth and impact of security incidents has increased the number of stakeholders in the security equation. Not only do you need to communicate effectively with your own team, you need to translate your counsel into business language that resonates not only with a broad range of impacted parties inside the company such as the board and your peers, but also with stakeholders outside the organization including customers, partners and even law enforcement.” - Vishal Salvi, Chief Information Security Officer, Infosys Source: Security for Business Innovation Council: “The Evolution & Revolution of the CISO.” RSA.com.

  4. 4. 4 2CISOs who know how to build trusted cross- functional relationships that gain the confidence and commitment of the enterprise can pay dividends for all involved, given the critical nature of cybersecurity in reducing digital risk for the business: “Much like CIOs, CISOs must operate as a bridge between an increasingly complex technology landscape and an increasingly complex business landscape. To be an effective bridge, they must achieve a high level of proficiency in both areas, and continuously learn and adapt as each side evolves; all while maintaining a strong grasp on technology. Exacerbating the challenge, CISOs must also remain deeply attuned to a critical third ecosystem—the threat environment—which is increasing in complexity and hostility every day.” - John Scimone, SVP, Chief Security Officer, Dell Technologies COLLABORATION Source: Security for Business Innovation Council: “The Evolution & Revolution of the CISO.” RSA.com.

  5. 5. 5 3Making decisions that reflect good judgement and enable quick problem solving goes beyond even the greatest technical understanding of security, threats or vulnerabilities. Decisions for the evolved CISO will require a fundamental understanding of digital risk: “As a CISO you can’t think about security myopically, you have to look at what the business objectives are and only then overlay a security perspective. "Today, we want and are expected to be business enablers that are helping to drive not only growth, but innovation. If your company wants to do something new, you have to bring security to other areas of the organization and truly understand where the business is heading and align your strategy to the overall business strategy. Security leaders have to understand business and the role they play in that business. The answers are not binary with a right or wrong approach. If you are informed by the business you are supporting, you can find the balance between risk appetite and risk mitigation." - Jerry R. Geisler III, Senior Vice President and Global Chief Information Security Officer, Walmart, Inc. CRITICAL THINKING “The CISO role is key in the risk management of the organization. While technology will always be a crucial component of risk management, CISOs also need to understand human behaviors and decision making patterns. Increasingly risks cannot be mitigated by technology alone; systems and processes also need to be designed so people can intuitively be security conscious. CISOs need to understand how humans navigate and use technology to effectively implement a security mindset throughout an organization.” - Dr. Martijn Dekker, Managing Director, Chief Information Security Officer, ABN Amro Source: Security for Business Innovation Council: “The Evolution & Revolution of the CISO.” RSA.com.

  6. 6. 6 4Leadership for the evolved CISO include skills needed to influence company leadership, motivate peers, inspire vendors and empower the right teams: “Leadership expectations are expanding. You will not survive without people skills. Security is the entire company’s responsibility and CISOs have to be able to work across the entire organization to create a sense of urgency and create internal and external partnerships. We need to be a person that the business trusts because we have both data and insights into that data to deliver a powerful business message,” - Roland Cloutier, Senior Vice President, Global Chief Security Officer, Automatic Data Processing, Inc.
