IDC Security Summit CISOs of the Future: Guardians of Digital Trust

DIGITAL Event | Digital Event | Turkey | September 22, 2021



COVID-19 caused enormous change in the way we work. At the start of the global pandemic, existing digital transformation programs and especially remote work requirements accelerated exponentially. All businesses and sectors were forced into making transitions to digital transactions and interactions. In the face of these challenges, and to take advantage of hasty responses, cyber criminal activity has soared. Whilst technology has proven to be key in keeping businesses afloat by enabling remote work, agile business, and external digital engagement, IDC believes that investment in security will receive fresh boosts in Turkey in the post-pandemic era.  Security has been thrust to centre stage as a fundamental enabler for new business models. And yet… the role of the CISO is no longer just about traditional security and managing threats. The CISO of the future is required to have a much broader focus. The big picture is all about digital trust.

Digital trust has become a pervasive, business-critical issue, high on the corporate agenda. It is underpinned by technologies such as information management and identity and it incorporates elements such as security, privacy, and compliance. Yet it is the outcomes and benefits that digital trust delivers that place it high on the board agenda and, by extension, on the CISO's agenda.

Trust connects key elements of business value such as financials, ecosystems, and sustainability. Companies need to demonstrate that they can be trusted, not just from a security perspective but in a much more holistic sense. CISOs will begin to utilise trust metrics, working with CIOs and CFOs to convey adherence to ethical, responsible, and sustainable business practices. The trust focus will expand from security to bridging the Digital Risk gap. The Future CISO will play a key role in managing and orchestrating trust metrics across their organization.
