This comprehensive research report delves into the crucial role of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and explores the strategies and skills they need to cultivate to influence the board effectively. Recognising the growing importance of Cybersecurity in today’s digital landscape, this paper highlights the significance of bridging the gap between technical expertise and board-level decision-making.
We talked with 30 leading cybersecurity leaders in the Asia-Pacific region in key sectors, including consulting, technology, financial services, telecoms, and consumer goods. We discuss the challenges of Generative AI, how this is impacting the nature of the role, and what skills and strategies are needed to influence the board.
Key Takeaways in Part 1 :
Why CISOs Will Become Better Business Leaders
The contributors discuss the significant cybersecurity risks Generative AI, such as Chat GPT, poses, including data loss, misuse of sensitive information, and increased cyberattacks and agree there is a lack of guidelines and common standards regarding the use of generative AI. The lack of guidelines leads to challenges in response strategies, with employees being the weakest line of defence and lacking awareness of the risks associated with generative AI, leading to potential data breaches and privacy issues.
