Show Topic Summary:

If you want to get in the mind of a board member, I submit to you my discussion with Mary Gardner we did last night on #brakesec #education. Join Mary and I as we discuss the functions of a board, messaging to various levels of leadership and teams, and what it takes to make that leap to being a CISO.
And when you're done, and you need someone to help your org get more mature, contact the team at GoldiKnox.

Questions and topics:


    1. “Just 69% of responding board members see eye-to-eye with their chief information security officers (CISOs). Fewer than half (47%) of members serve on boards that interact with their CISOs regularly, and almost a third of them only see their CISOs at board presentations. “

    2. They obviously have different priorities, so what brings everyone to the table to discuss? Are they even worried about security?

  2. Tactical goals vs. org goals and aligning them

  3. What are boards most worried about these days? 

    1. Staying relevant in the face of AI?

    2. What tech will protext them from the newest threats?

  4. GRC is forced security, security is completely optional, Compliance requires some sort of security
