The CIO’s role in managing C-level involvement in cybersecurity is assumed, but how it’s executed varies greatly across firms. Should the CIO ‘own’ cybersecurity, or is it the domain of another executive (eg. Chief Risk Officer, Chief Operations Officer, etc.)? What is the role of other C-level executives in cybersecurity? What do the C-level executives need to know about cybersecurity? In this session, we will explore these questions about C-Level cybersecurity leadership.
