Looking at 2020 and COVID, however, it’s becoming even more challenging for the CISO to enable this competitive advantage while maintaining security. As Jack Mannino, CEO at nVisium, explains to Security Magazine, “The challenge for many organizations is continuing to accomplish their security must-dos with significantly fewer resources. Relying on a pool of trusted security partners is critical, as niche skills or deep expertise may come from external sources when internal headcount is constrained.”
This is why the role of the CISO cannot be underestimated. Despite a lack of resources, their authority, experience and expertise can keep the organization safe as they expand in an uncertain world.
