The C-Suite and Security Post-Pandemic


The CISO role has evolved dramatically over the last decade, inline with the risk landscape a digitized world provides. 2020 once more putt a brand’s security and risk leader front and center, for their cybersecurity response. In a few short months, the CISO has eked out more responsibility for themselves than ever before; how can they continue to push that momentum in a business-as-usual context? Or, has last year taught us that leaving a CISO alone until a crisis hits is a poor form of business management?

Deneen DeFiore, CISO, United Airlines; Selim Aissi, CISO, Ellie Mae; Erik Decker, Chief Security and Privacy Officer, University of Chicago Medicine; George Eapen, CISO, Petrofac; and Carl Eberling, CIO/CISO of Forcepoint, came together at The Studio @ Home to discuss the ever-developing relationship between a CISO and their C-Suite.
