The speaker will introduce the competencies necessary to be a successful CISO and why they are critical for success; give an introduction to leadership itself, contrasting it with management and emphasizing its importance; talk in detail about conflict resolution; explore the reasons for conflict, differentiating good and bad conflict; and provide a framework for resolving healthy conflict.
