Our team travels North America, interviewing cybersecurity leaders who help lead the SecureWorld conferences in their respective regions.

And while we're talking best practices and networking, we love to ask them another question: What does your role look like, within your organization?

Here are some of our favorite conversations on the topic.

My role as a Business Information Security Officer

Mike Kearn, BISO at U.S. Bank:"I never have the luxury of working with people who completely understand my role."


My role as Vice President of Information Security

Jimmy Sanders, VP of Information Security at Netflix DVD:"Our culture is based on two aspects called freedom and responsibility."


My role as Chief Information Security Officer

Deneen DeFiore, SVP & Global CISO at GE Aviation: "We invent the future of flight, we lift people up, and we bring them home safely. What I tell my team is we support that mission."


My role as Chief Security Officer

George Finney, Chief Security Officer at Southern Methodist University: "The times that I think I've been successful in security are the times when I've built that relationship over months and years."

The 2019 SecureWorld conference calendar is set. Are you part of your regional InfoSec community and conference? Here is what you can expect.
