The CISOs Role During Periods of Instability
Five Proactive Steps Towards Stabilisation
In an increasingly interconnected, data‑driven world, any period of destabilisation has the potential to cause unforeseen consequences to organisations wherever they may reside or operate. The CISO’s role as a critical friend, advisor and subject matter expert remains an important one if organisations are to remain resilient in troubled times.
But do the CISO’s key stakeholders see it that way too? What should the CISO be doing to pre-empt inevitable questions and demonstrate real business value?
1. Monitor and report on the developing situation in context
2. Use the right language for the audience
3. Optimise the resilience of key at-risk assets
4. Prepare the business for responding to a potential incident
5. Be a present leader to your business
