The 9-to-5 Workday is Dead. Here’s What CISOs Must Do

The 9-to-5 Workday is Dead. Here’s What CISOs Must Do

CISO Panels

The pandemic has eradicated the traditional 9-to-5 workday. Employees are juggling kids, pets, and family during the day on top of their daily work responsibilities. Some employees handle it better than others. The younger workforce, in fact, has not only adapted to this new work environment, they’ve thrived in it. CISOs and other business leaders must accept this new work environment, including flexible work hours, and have faith the work will get done. Delegate tasks and give a hard deadline then trust the work will be completed on time. Adopt a trust but verify approach and check in if needed, but otherwise refrain from micromanaging.

CISO Street recently moderated a virtual CISO panel and asked panelists about their perspectives on current cyber trends and challenges. In this video, Trent Bunnell, Information System Security Officer for LinQuest and Jeff Story, CISO for The Bankers Bank, discuss how they’ve adapted to managing the younger workforce during the pandemic.
