April 13, 2022
White Papers

In a turbulent global environment, managing risk and setting up companies for operational resilience is a huge challenge. And few people are better-equipped to tackle these challenges than chief intelligence security officers (CISOs). Unfortunately, information security risk management is far from straightforward. Siloed data and a lack of alignment between information security and other business units can make it difficult to identify and mitigate risk. 

By reading “Chief Information Security Officer: A Critical Role in Resilience of the Extended Enterprise,” you’ll learn more about the importance of the CISO role, and how exactly CISOs can bolster their risk intelligence to help their organizations succeed. With the right strategies, CISOs can help both the business and IT sides of their firms become more agile, efficient, and effective, laying the groundwork for long-term operational resilience

Discover How CISOs Can Tackle Risk Management

Written by GRC 20/20 Research, the paper goes in-depth on the world that CISOs find themselves in. By reading the paper, you’ll learn: 

  • Why global ecosystems of risk are so challenging to handle, and why resilience is so essential as a result. 
  • How organizations have internal obstacles that get in the way of mitigating risk and achieving resilience. 
  • Why failing to handle the challenges tied to information security risk management puts organizations in jeopardy and harms business performance. 
  • The role that CISOs must play to align information security with business interests, and the benefits that come from doing so
  • The first steps CISOs should take, and the most important questions they should ask,in order to implement change
  • The strategies and methods CISOs should use to evolve their risk intelligence, and the benefits of a solid risk intelligence strategy for a company’s operational resilience

Of course, no organization acts in a vacuum — rather, there is a vast web of third-party relationships that CISOs must account for. This is only possible with real-time risk assessment that can give companies visibility into supply chains below tier-1, revealing the full network of third-parties an organization is tied to.
