black-hat-2018-recapIn this video, my colleague Jon Oltsik and I share some of our thoughts from the recent CISO Summit at Black Hat 2018. While respecting the event’s Chatam House Rules that require us to keep CISO comments anonymous, we have a conversation about some of the takeaways from the panels and presentations at the event on central cybersecurity topics including:

  • The role of machine learning in a cybersecurity program.
  • How risk has become the language of the CISO.
  • The importance of personnel diversity in cybersecurity teams.
  • The positive impact of integrating security with DevOps (“DevSecOps”) processes.

We close with a few comments about cybersecurity platforms, which we dive into a follow-on video by sharing key findings from a related recently completed ESG research study. Thanks for watching!
