Information Security and Records Management: Are They a Good Marriage?

Tuesday, May 05 | 2:30PM–3:30PM | Minneapolis Grand Ballroom Salon E, Third Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
Historically, in order to succeed in the role of CISO, strong technical skills have been required. A current trend is to meld managerial/business-oriented roles, such as records management, under the CISO. Trends that blend more than one function such as records management and information security are provoking debate among security professionals who are concerned that information security is no longer a primary focus. The University of Virginia and NDSU have combined these roles under the Information Security Office. This interactive presentation will provide two different institutional perspectives on how it works and how it can be woven into security.

OUTCOMES: Understand what knowledge and skills are needed for current and emerging job descriptions * Debate if additional business skills are needed for a CISO * Network with other CISOs who have successfully blended skills
