In its sixth annual, the Global CISO Forum promises an exciting mix of industries, formats and interactive presentations that reflect this year's theme, "The Butterfly Effects of Strong Information Security Leadership." The forum is intended for executives to explore the ways their leadership impacts their organizations, management teams and careers.

The Challenges and Opportunities Facing Today's CISO
Keynote Summary: In the mid-1990's, cyber security started to be taken more seriously in the C-suite when the first CISO was installed. Every organization eventually wanted a CISO, but unfortunately, expectations and desired outcome throughout the years have dramatically exceeded results. This keynote will walk through the history of the CISO, the unfulfilled dreams and hopes of both security practitioners and the companies that hire them, epic failures and successes and what the future holds for this evolving profession in the face of advanced threats and rapid technology change.

  • Thursday, September 15, 2016 at 11:40 a.m. - 12:25 p.m. ET
  • In the Ravinia Ballrooms F&G at Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia, Atlanta, Georgia

Eddie has over 25 years of experience in information security, including recent work as the CISO of RSA, the Security Division of EMC, and co-founder/CSO of NetWitness.
