Revisiting our 2017-2018 Series – “The First 100 Days of the New CISO”

first 100 days

The Third Series of our Cyber Security Transformation Podcast

 

We are continuing with the third series of our Cyber Security Transformation Podcast and will now be focusing on revisiting our 2017-2018 series of articles entitled “The First 100 Days of the New CISO”

The series, originally published on the Corix Partners blog between November 2017 and March 2018, followed the journey of the new CISO, framing it in a “6 days – 6 weeks – 6 months” pattern, and was followed by a number of commentary pieces published later in 2018 on which the podcast series will also look back.

As we publish the podcast episodes of this second part of our third series, we will be updating this page, together with links to the original piece each comments on.

A summary piece for the 2017-2018 series can also be found here on the Security Transformation Leadership publication on Medium

Once again, we would like to take this opportunity to thanks all our followers, and all of those – clients, partners, friends, and in this case, many CISOs – who have been with us on this journey over the past 7 years, and have been instrumental in developing this narrative.
