CISO 360 Risk Vision
Wednesday, 21 February 2024
Room 501 Private Dining Room
Legacy House| Rosewood Hong Kong
How can we reduce cybersecurity risk effectively across the enterprise and in a measurable way?
Welcome to CISO 360 Risk Vision – Hong Kong, part of the global thought-leadership roundtable series sponsored by Qualys and hosted by Pulse Conferences.
Greater collaboration and sharing are vital to stay ahead of and to reduce risk in the fast-paced digital landscape. We invite you to take a seat at the table for peer-to peer benchmarking, knowledge sharing and networking in an exclusive private fine-dining setting.
As CISOs, the challenge is real – we ask ourselves, is our organisation more secure today than it was yesterday? With the attack surface expanding, speed, volume, and consolidation are essential as we race against bad actors to fix vulnerabilities once detected. With a unified platform and a risk-based strategy we can show various stakeholders that security teams are doing a good job.
Guests are encouraged to actively contribute to the discussion. Talking points
- How are we as CISOs communicating risk ‘at speed’ to the Board? Is there a solid understanding of cyber risk and how is this resonating with the Board?
- What approaches are we using to measure how we reduce cybersecurity risk effectively across the enterprise? What metric gets the best reaction when I share it?
- How is risk managed at the time of an incident? Who owns the risk?
- How are we balancing basic security hygiene with the need to embrace innovation in automation to improve ROI?
- As a collective group, what are our predictions on what risk reduction will look like in the next 5-10 years?
Richard Seiersen, Chief Risk Technology Officer of Qualys will co-steer the conversation working alongside a prominent CISO from the region.
