Topic 1 : The human aspect of security Leadership
Topic Summary: Security leadership is largely misunderstood, and many organizations struggle to define their expectations from their security leaders. During times of peace, businesses want a diplomat that talks about business objectives in non-technical terms, but when all hell breaks loose, they want a Commander-In-Chief to just make it all go away. From convoluted CISO job descriptions, to interviews that take many months to complete the real struggle begins when one finally gets the job.
Why being a CISO is one of the most difficult leadership roles? What do many CISOs struggle with? And why should CISOs focus on people skills in order to deliver their mission? In this talk, Yaron Levi, CISO of Dolby and the Co-host of the Cyber Security leadership podcast will share his views and experiences from the front lines and provide a path for security leaders to keep their sanity.
Yaron Levi is the CISO for Dolby. In this role he manages a team responsible for information risk management, cyber defense, regulatory and compliance, architecture and engineering, and data loss protection.
Prior to joining Dolby, Yaron was the CISO for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City, a Deputy CISO for Cerner Corporation; an Information Security Business Partner for Intuit; an Information Security Architect and Product Manager for eBay. Yaron is a Research Fellow for the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). Hw was the co-chair and lead architect of the Cloud Enterprise Architecture, Contributor to the Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire (CAIQ), and Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM). Yaron serves as a venture advisor for several VCs and Security Startups, he is the co-founder of the Kansas City CISO forum, B-Sides Kansas City, and is a frequent speaker on Cyber Security Architecture, DevSecOps and Cyber Defense. Yaron holds a B.A in Social Sciences and Management and is a graduate from the FBI CISO Academy.
