Session Description

This session will explore the evolution of a CISO’s changing role as a function of business maturity. The CISO, as a C-level role, is often not well understood by other executive managers or even other IT leaders. Often technical or compliance focused, the CISO is often seen more as an IT resource than a business leader by the organizations they defend. CISO’s don’t often escape the IT silo, and when the do the business may not know what to do when strategic innovations are coming from new places.

Having worked as a CISO in organizations across the maturity spectrum, Sabino has experienced first-hand what an innovative CISO can and should do to drive the business forward outside of IT security. In sharing his stories and struggles, Sabino aims to help organizations move the CISO function from compliance or sales “table stakes” to a consultative business leader that uses the information risk management skill set to grow the business.

What the audience would expect/take away
• How the CISO can drive business transformation, and open new markets
• How the role of the CISO has evolved from a Technical and Compliance focus, to a Business Leadership and Innovation focus
• A modern approach to the CISO role in startups and *aaS organizations

Speaker: Sabino Marquez - Chief Information Security Officer
Sabino elevates the practice of information risk management to a competitive differentiator that can open new markets and, drive stakeholder trust. Prior to joining Allocadia, Sabino led the Virtual CISO practice for TruSec Consulting, and served as Sr. Director of Privacy and Information Risk for Accretive Solutions, and as Global Information Risk Manager for Vision Critical.
