Bridge The Gap Between Your SMEs And CISO

This week we were at CS4CA USA in Houston (virtually). The video below is a presentation that was given at the event on the topic of bridging the gap between security subject matter experts and the CISO. Brent Gage, one of our Cybersecurity SMEs, and Bill Lawrence, our CISO, joined together to provide some guidance on this.

In our conversations with companies all over the world we’ve noticed a common theme. Nearly all of them describe difficulty in communicating security information to business leaders in a way that helps them understand how something in the data impacts the business. Critical infrastructure companies spending a lot of time and money on security systems and process, but if there is poor communication about what something means, resources can be misallocated and opportunities to prevent a breach can be missed.

The platform helps eliminate this problem through reporting automation and quick-reference dashboards. But if you’re not using our platform, there are some ways you can narrow the gap. Brent and Bill do a great job of providing some examples you can use.

We hope you enjoy the brief (~12min) presentation. Feel free to contact us with questions – we’re always happy to share our experience. Hey, while you’re at that link, check out the 3 min video demo of our platform and let us know if you’d like to see more.
