Next Chapter Meeting - January 2, 2019
  • Topic: Cyber Business Communication & Metrics
  • Sponsor (food & drink): TBA
  • Facilitator: Jill Allison
Chapter Meeting DETAILS:

TopicSecurity has an unprecedented opportunity to empower management to drive a proactive security agenda for their organizations. Security practitioners must try to see cybersecurity as management sees it: a business imperative, something that should align with risk appetite and business priorities.

Traditionally, security leaders have presented a mass of technical and security operation metrics, which can fail to make a mark and engender trust in their ability as enterprise security leaders. The majority of leaders find it a challenge to understand what management is looking for and provide the required information in a framework that resonates. Practitioners need to engage in meaningful conversations with management and be accepted as equal partners in business conversations rather than compliance chasers, technology spenders, and/or one-way cost centers.

FacilitatorJill Allison brings over 30 years of cybersecurity industry and enterprise risk leadership experience for government, research and corporate organizations. She is currently a CISO advisor for Kudelski Security. She has served on the leadership team for the Manhattan Cyber Project, National Biometric Security Project (NBSP), and led the strategic alliance for the first cybersecurity insurance cover offered by Cigna, SAIC and Pinkertons. She earned a BA in Economics from Gustavus Adolphus College, MIM in Technology from Thunderbird Graduate School of International Management, and Wharton MBA in Strategic and Entrepreneurial Management. Jill is currently pursuing CISO Certification from Carnegie Mellon University. For the past 15 years Jill has served as a Volunteer Leader with ASIS International, IT Security and Women in Security Councils, and Member of the CSO Center for Leadership and Development. She is a longstanding Advisory Board member for the Cyber Security Summit.
