CSOs are increasingly expected to contribute to business success by effectively managing the risk profile of organizations.
Therefore, CSOs must shift their primary focus from the internal and functional, to the enterprise and transformational, and ultimately to the external and business strategy.
To compliment this shift, they must apply specific leadership competencies, enhance their staff’s expertise and elevate their business stakeholder relationships. Given the enhanced ask from the role, there is a need for pioneers, for collective problem-solving and agenda-setting, for research, tools and insights, and for peer engagement; the first steps to build the professional security community.
CSO Forum is envisioned to be a community-led and community-driven platform on corporate security issues which draws on peer engagement and collective wisdom to promote best practices/benchmarks.
The CTO Forum is India’s leading fortnightly magazine for technology decision makers. It promotes the exchange of informed perspectives and insights on trends, management techniques and new IT business strategies, between CIOs and other stakeholders.
The CTO Forum is acknowledged as a 'trusted source' of knowledge for top management responsible for balancing the demands on technology for ‘growth and governance’.
