CISO at the Heart of the IS Revolution

C I SO AT THE HEART OF THE I S REVOLUT ION 2019 TRENDS AND THE C I SO RADAR

What are the key points to draw from today’s welter of cyber issues? Cybersecurity is in constant flux: experiencing ever-evolving threats and regulations, but also a profound renewal of the way information systems (ISs) function. Faced with this raft of changes, distinguishing the substantive trends, and setting an appropriate cybersecurity strategy, can be challenging. With this inmind, experts fromWavestone’s cybersecurity teams meet regularly to discuss market trends, and identify core issues, new topics, and emerging technologies to be explored. This year, these reflections have resulted in an in-depth analysis of the major threads in the coming revolution, the stakes for cybersecurity functions, and an updated CISO radar. This tool is widely used by Wavestone and its clients to support stra- tegic thinking, for example, when developing master plans, holding collaborative seminars with employees to construct a specific radar for a company or business area, or to identify innovative solutions to be tested through demonstrations.

AUTHORS

This publication presents the CISO radar and offers an overview of the areas we have identified as being key for 2019, from the 120+ topics the radar covers.

METHODOLOGY The CISO radar is a tool that Wavestone has been developing and publishing each year since 2011. Three times a year, more than 40 experts meet to discuss the latest developments and key issues based on observations and experiences gained through working with Wavestone’s clients. The CISO radar covers over 120 subjects explored and analyzed by our experts. The radar contains a broad selection of the topics that CISOs must handle as part of their roles. It’s presented as a series of dials covering key themes (identity, protection, detection, risk management, compliance, and continuity) on three levels. The Mature level covers topics that every CISO can - and must - mas- ter. The Trending level covers topics currently being addressed; these are new areas where initial feedback can be shared. And the Emerging level covers topics on the horizon that are still little known or have no obvious solutions. These are included to better predict future developments and prepare for their emergence in companies.
