So You Wanna be a CISO?
This is a great question. For many years, Cecil aspired to be a CISO when the CISO term hasn’t been invented yet. He will share the various ways to get to that role including his own journey and experiences along the way. It is the aspirations of many security professionals, and not many of us get there and very few survive the stress and challenges of the job. Today, Cecil works with various CISOs and he helped many of his former staff and mentees get to this point but it’s not easy. Lots of sacrifices – time, effort, and a lot of patience. There is no single formula for success.
