   Debating the issues raised





The role of the CISO has shifted: from network security to Application Security and now into a revenue enablement role. In addition to this expansion, attackers are finding increasingly sophisticated ways to exploit application development and with the supply chain more susceptible to attacks, buyers are becoming increasingly concerned with the security of the software they purchase.
What does this mean for CISOs? In some organisations, CISOs are now being brought into the sales process to discuss the security of their products. In other words, you are being tasked with greater responsibility. That said, as you become more involved in the sales process, you help enable revenue, granting you more leverage within your organisation. 
Join us to discuss and learn more about:
  • The shift of the CISO role to a revenue enabler 
  • How the strength of your AppSec process is increasingly valuable in sales enablement
  • Maximising budget and resources in the current economic environment
