  • How the CISO role has evolved from technical to advisory and the importance of developing the skills to enable them to articulate threats in a way that translates to financials and risks
  • The soft skills required for the new CISO: how to develop abilities in finance, contract management, negotiation skills, change management, and more
  • The CISO role has gained tremendous importance to most businesses: what are the dos and don’ts for them to meet what’s now expected of their position?
  • The importance of not being a function of “no”
  • Developing emotional intelligence
  • Improving your story-telling skills: good stories inspire emotions, and emotions inspire people to act
