In a fast-paced world of innovation, mobility, outsourcing, and social technology, today's chief information security officers must possess a blend of warrior-like technical skills combined with strong leadership abilities. In addition, they must possess business and legal expertise. Learn from a panel of seasoned CISOs as they discuss how the role of the CISO has evolved and what new skills and knowledge are recommended for those who want to move forward and upward in their career. This interactive session will involve real-time polling from the audience. We want to hear from you on how you feel the role has evolved and what elements are key for a successful current or future CISO.
