Our world today

As the challenges of the digital age change and evolve, so must the role of the CISO. The status quo won’t suffice.

CISOs must tackle the complexities of the:

  • Speed of technology innovation
  • Dynamic regulatory landscape
  • Evolving cyber threats
  • Security talent gap
  • Management of economic expectations

To succeed, the CISO role demands adaptation to environmental needs, adoption of new approaches, and strategic reframing of their role within an organisation. Such development inspires reflection – understanding one’s strengths, one’s growth opportunities, and how best to learn from and with fellow CISOs.

What is next for CISOs?

Getting involved in CISO Next takes three easy steps:

Combining design thinking with deep expertise

What makes CISO Next unique?

The CISO Next initiative produces content and events crafted exclusively for CISOs, with CISOs. The resources focus on what CISOs need to succeed in your role. Protiviti values a CISOs time, so we are intentional with our events. If you join an event, expect a deep dive into the real problems and solutions that matter to you.

Security is constantly changing, which requires both short and long-term agility and development. CISO Next connects CISOs regularly to nurture peer relationships and create a safe, creative space to discuss the most relevant challenges facing CISOs.

Combining design thinking with deep expertise
Design thinking with subject matter expertise

But wait, there’s more!

In security, models have been upgraded for how to architect our environments, secure our assets and build our applications, but have struggled to update the model of how to plan for the future.

CISO Next intentionally couples a contemporary brainstorming model – design thinking – with deep subject matter expertise to drive the security conversation forward.

Design thinking is a process and a mindset. When designing new solutions, we commit to trying something new. Thinking like a designer gives permission to fail and to learn from our mistakes. New ideas are generated, feedback received, then iterated; sharing the results with the CISO community.
