    Session Synopsis

    Among many of a CISO’s stresses and fears is finding out that their organisation has had a security failure – which they don’t have under control.
    The life of a CISO is far from straight forward, not discounting their daily roles, they have many factors that play on their mind.
    Dealing with their team, their board, the latest ransomware, Third Party breaches to malicious insider activity to name just a few, the CISO’s role is not for the faint hearted.

    Join us for this for this session with Richard Archdeacon and Rob Lay, Cisco as they discuss:

    • Your concerns and fears as we head for 2022
