For CISOs who desire the proverbial seat at the table, they must do more than protect the business. They must intimately know the business; how it functions, what are its competitive advantages, and, of course, where are the inherent risks. As a CISO, do you know who your internal and external customers are? Do you know their motivations? How do they interact with each other and is the experience positive? How can you make it better? Once you know the answers to these and similar questions, you’re in a better position to add strategic value.

In this video, Dave provides some valuable advice regarding how CISOs can add value to the organization. The concepts are easy however putting them into practice takes effort and dedication.
