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

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.

 

HotTopics, in partnership with Trellix, proudly presents The Global CISO 100, celebrating and showcasing innovative security leadership, and sharing best practice to elevate the role of the CISO beyond the 'back-office'.

 

The global CISO 100 awards highlights the achievements of our Global CISO 100 winners and invites nominations for the 2024 accolade. 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.
