Want to know what a Chief Security Officer's job entails? How to balance cyber risk for the enterprise? This session will provide the rundown of a typical day for the Chief Security Officer for Tenable, a public cyber exposure company. Everyday there are more and more threats and vulnerabilities while the attack surface grows via digital transformation in areas such as: OT, IoT, EIoT, IIoT and cloud technologies (Operational Technologies, Internet of Things, Enterprise Internet of Things, Industrial Internet of Things). Focusing on what matters involves the ability to identify your critical functions and assets, and being able to prioritize threats and vulnerabilities. Learn how we do that at Tenable and why I love my job.
