Here’s How CISOs are Responding to the New Normal

Here’s How CISOs are Responding to the New Normal

CISO Panels

The work environment changed drastically in mid-March as the global pandemic chased employees out of the corporate office and into the home office. Cybersecurity changed too as a result. Security teams partnered with their IT colleagues to enable a seamless transition from office to home to minimize business disruption. They adopted new procedures, embraced new workflows, and procured new tools to defend an expanded attack surface. If working from home is the new normal, organizations benefit when CISOs stay ahead of the curve, whether moving systems to the cloud, monitoring printer or USB use, or conducting phishing simulations targeting their employees.

CISO Street recently moderated a virtual CISO panel and asked panelists about their perspectives on current cyber trends and challenges. In this video, Eric Walters, CISO for Burns & McDonnell, Stephenie Southard, CISO for BCU, Shannon Lawson, CISO & Chief Privacy Officer, City of Phoenix, and Mike Davis, CISO, Alliant Group share how their jobs have evolved since the coronavirus.
