Moving beyond FUD: The kinder, gentler CISO
Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt have been the calling card and sometimes crutch of the security professional. Motivating your peers and business partners with images of catastrophe will only serve short term objectives and doesn't build the long term productive relationships you will need to be a successful CISO. Learning what motivates the other C-Suite members and speaking their language will help you navigate the problems they are facing and allows you to integrate your own security objectives into their solutions. Showing up even when security is not the primary topic and proving your worth outside of the scope of IT will build a support base you will come to rely on when your proposal for the best security option is not the cheapest or most convenient. Trust, not fear, will win the day.

Global CISO Forum 2020 - Keyaan Williams

His professional experience includes two decades of support for corporate information security and risk management programs in large, regulated enterprises.
Keyaan’s reputation for leadership was established when he led the operational transformation of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) as the President of the International Board of Directors. He also served as the Sr. Manager Global Information Security with the DB Consulting Group working to build the program that standardized information security, risk management, and compliance practices across 46 country offices in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. This position stemmed from his previous service as Director Information Security (ISSO) for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention where he directed all aspects of information security, compliance, and risk management within the CDC Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services (CSELS).

Keyaan’s talk at Global CISO Forum is titled Avoiding Senseless Security Metrics: A new prescription for seeing security information clearly. In Keyaan’s own words: The struggle with metrics affects all business leaders who strive to measure and communicate the value of their programs and initiatives. Security metrics might be the most difficult measurements to communicate because non-technical business leaders and security executives speak completely languages. This session shines a new light onto old security measurements to help our business counterparts see the information more clearly.
