The Cybersecurity Trailblazers

From back office to change agent: The CISO's evolution

 

HotTopics, in partnership with Trellix, proudly presents The Global CISO 100, celebrating the exceptional achievements of innovative cybersecurity leaders reimagining governance, risk management, and security to improve their organisations' business resilience and brand reputation.

Today’s Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) must navigate a landscape filled with rampant ransomware, sophisticated nation-state attacks, and escalating security incidents. These adversities, however, present a golden opportunity to transform cybersecurity into a cornerstone of digital innovation and organisational resilience.

The global CISO 100 awards highlight the achievements of our Global CISO 100 winners. Through this platform, alongside dedicated events and content as part of the series, we aim to empower security leaders with the insights and tools needed to drive tangible change, while celebrating leading CISOs as pivotal figures in driving business innovation and security.
