Although Co3 Systems’ customer and prospect base is very diverse, spanning organizations of all sizes and many industries, sometimes they all agree on features they’d like to see in our product (this makes Allen’s job a lot easier). One such request was support for custom data fields, including where in the UI those fields would go. For example, you may choose to add a custom field to the incident creation wizard, or position it in the “Details” section of an incident. This weekend’s release added this feature. While we were at it, we further expanded our global regulation coverage by adding breach response regulations and guidance for Latin America.

In this webinar I defined what is meant by Chief Information Security Officer, discussed three important changes to the working environment experienced by most new CISOs, and wrapped up with recommended ideas on what a new CISO can do in her first 90 days on the job to expedite the process of getting up and running. While the presentation is targeted to the new or imminent CISO, the ideas presented should also be of value to people who aspire to the position or have been in it for some time.
The overarching theme of the presentation is that for the new CISO, as with any new role, the manager’s responsibility is to avoid malpractice by ensuring a proper diagnosis before offering a prescription. “Prescription prior to diagnosis is malpractice.”
