CISO to Operations: Cybersecurity Remote Office and Retention Wins

Wednesday, October 11 | 8:00AM–8:45AM CT | W184bc, Level 1
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session
The University of Illinois is innovating how we deliver cybersecurity support in the remote/hybrid world. Our new CISO is full-time remote-eligible, and everyone from directors to ops has hybrid and flexible options. Beyond this, we’ve implemented 4x10 and other options to support our workers while still delivering high-value cybersecurity support services. In this session we’ll cover the struggles and success of supporting this environment and how you can enhance the support, recruitment, and retention of your staff.
