4 Steps To Make You a Better Leader. The Last One Is a No Brainer

4 Steps To Make You a Better Leader

CISO Panels

Being an effective leader is difficult during ordinary times, let alone during a global pandemic. Covid completely changed our lives, including the way we work. The best leaders adjusted quickly. CISOs, no strangers to adaption, led this change in many companies. The pandemic’s effects will be felt long after the last person is vaccinated. Business and security leaders therefore must continue to evolve in how they lead and defend their organizations against cyberattacks. Secure remote technologies, beef up security education and awareness for employees, and even mix up daily board briefs. These and other examples keep businesses nimble and responsive. They also keep employees alert and engaged.

CISO Street recently moderated a virtual CISO panel and asked panelists about their perspectives on current cyber trends and challenges. In this video, Devin Shirley, CISO for Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Mia Boom-Ibes, VP Information Security Strategy, Innovation & Analytics for Allstate Insurance Company share what steps they’re taking to be effective leaders during Covid.
