Proposed questions for Security Leaders

1. One of the challenges many Security Leaders face is finding the right cybersecurity talent and retention. What do you do to enhance Security Operations employee experience, motivate and nurture a future-ready Security Operations team?


2. How do you quantify the value of security-aware culture?


3. What is your advice on the effective management and continuous training of a dispersed Incident Response Plan stakeholders?


4. Automation, Machine Learning (ML), Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are being adopted within the Security Operations environment with more confidence. In your opinion, how will the role and importance of human experts change over the next three to five years?


5. What technical and non-technical skills do you consider important to ensure effective cyber resilience and defence of your organization?


6. A SANS Institute study suggests that the top barrier to Security Operations excellence is staff availability. What status quo would you challenge (or have challenged) to help increase Security Operations agility and efficiency in short-term and long-term?


7. A Ponemon Institute Report suggests that cyber crime drains $11.7 million per business annually, up 62 percent in five years. What Security Operations metrics do you really care about that also help engage Senior Leadership including ones at the Board Level? Please name 2-3.

8. Incident Response Life Cycle is arguably a tactical component of the security program and the success of your IR team depends on many factors. Which factors would you list in a successful recipe and why, based on your experience?


9. Organizations need a dynamic approach to envision the technology driven future and lead SOC transformation. What does SOC optimization mean to you? Where does it start and end?

10. How would you be able to quantify the business value of optimized SOC vs non-optimized SOC? (KPIs Metrics, Costs, etc.)
