Fight Fire with Fire: Proactive Cybersecurity Strategies for Today's Leaders (Hardcover)
Organizations around the world are in a struggle for survival, racing to transform themselves in a herculean effort to adapt to the digital age, all while protecting themselves from headline-grabbing cybersecurity threats. As organizations succeed or fail, the centrality and importance of cybersecurity and the role of the CISO--Chief Information Security Officer--becomes ever more apparent. It's becoming clear that the CISO, which began as a largely technical role, has become nuanced, strategic, and a cross-functional leadership position.
Fight Fire with Fire: Proactive Cybersecurity Strategies for Today's Leaders explores the evolution of the CISO's responsibilities and delivers a blueprint to effectively improve cybersecurity across an organization.
Fight Fire with Fire draws on the deep experience of its many all-star contributors. For example:
- Learn how to talk effectively with the Board from engineer-turned-executive Marianne Bailey, a top spokesperson well-known for global leadership in cyber
- Discover how to manage complex cyber supply chain risk with Terry Roberts, who addresses this complex area using cutting-edge technology and emerging standards
- Tame the exploding IoT threat landscape with Sonia Arista, a CISO with decades of experience across sectors, including healthcare where edge devices monitor vital signs and robots perform surgery
These are just a few of the global trailblazers in cybersecurity who have banded together to equip today's leaders to protect their enterprises and inspire tomorrow's leaders to join them.
With fires blazing on the horizon, there is no time for a seminar or boot camp. Cyber leaders need information at their fingertips. Readers will find insight on how to close the diversity and skills gap and become well-versed in modern cyber threats, including attacks coming from organized crime and nation-states.
This book highlights a three-pronged approach that encompasses people, process, and technology to empower everyone to protect their organization. From effective risk management to supply chain security and communicating with the board, Fight Fire with Fire presents discussions from industry leaders that cover every critical competency in information security.
