The Role of the CISO in a Digitally Transformed Organisation

Corix Partners is delighted to have been offered the opportunity to contribute the latest techUK publication setting out recommendations to help guide CISOs as organisations continue their digital transformation.

Released on 2 December 2021, The Role of the CISO in a Digitally Transformed Organisation highlights the complexities surrounding the role of the Chief Information Security Officer (the CISO). In this new report, we explore what the CISO should be focusing on in an era where every organisation is a technology organisation, as well as touching on the key attributes of a successful CISO – leadership, strategy, technical, and governance.

With over 800 members (the majority of which are SMEs) across the UK, techUK creates a network for innovation and collaboration across business, government and stakeholders to provide a better future for people, society, the economy and the planet.


Organization Reporting Lines to Optimize Information Security

The topic of the reporting line of the CISO is probably one of the oldest topics of discussion amongst cyber security communities. But why are we still here talking about it?

JC Gaillard, Founder & MD, Corix Partners, animated a webinar on this topic with the ADCG on 27 October 2021, looking back at his experience of over 20 years on the matter and his various publications on the theme. He explains why the right reporting line is key to success for the CISO but separation of duties considerations cannot rule alone.

The Association for Data and Cyber Governance is a membership organization of individuals, companies and other organizations that are interested in building and maintaining their knowledge of data and cyber governance.

The Way Forward with Cyber Security Target Operating Models

Many large organisations across all industries face the same challenges around cybersecurity and privacy: Growing regulatory demands, compounded by escalating cyber threats and skills shortages, and a business landscape dominated by the COVID pandemic and its aftermath.

Very often, their cyber security operating model has simply grown organically over the years and needs re-engineering or re-structuring: So what are the best ways to move forward with a cyber security operating model re-engineering programme?

In November 2021, we released a white paper on the topic offering a plan of approach for senior executives.
