Tools of the Trade: Lessons learned from (C)ISOs desks
Google provides 183 million hits for 'IT Security Best Practice'. However, IT operation in very large enterprise environments results in daily security challenges for which best practices either cannot be applied (due to the VUCA attributes of the environment) or do not provide the 'best' benefit. In this talk, we will present several challenges from both the daily life and the strategic decisions of (C)ISOs which can not or only partially be solved by applying best practices or security blue prints. Main areas will be efficient GRC/risk management, network segmentation/classification, and the handling of Cloud services.

The CISO Perspective
Once you have reached the heady heights of a CISO or head of security you are now in the position to create the exemplary security environment for your organisation. Now if you could just deal with those pesky users everything will be perfect. Of course in reality you are also in a position where you could wreak havoc on your business’ ability to operate effectively and profitably.
Thom will look at not only the positioning of the CISO in the organisation and it’s subsequent impacts but also the CISO’s approach to risk and the affects on the business, and finally an attitude and approach that can helps CISO’s use risk as a competitive advantage.
Join Thom as he shows that the CISO perspective from the business mountain doesn’t have to be so windy, and comes with spectacular views!
