CISOs Acknowledge Business Friction with Leaders

Two-thirds wish they could say 'yes' more.

More than 90% of CISOs report that their increased risk appetite is creating tension with their CEO and other members of the C-suite.

According to research by Netskope, 92% see the tension rising, while 66% say they are “walking a tightrope” between what the business wants and what makes sense from a security perspective.

However,  67% said they want to play a more active role, and 66% wish they could say “yes” to the business more often.

James Robinson, Netskope CISO said: “The research makes it clear that CISOs are generally hungry to play a more proactive role that enables innovation while also protecting the business.

“In my experience, the best way to make CISOs more proactive partners across the C-suite is to gain deep understanding of the business challenges C-suite colleagues are focused on solving and align those to security strategies, rather than attempt to assert security strategy - or individual technology choices - on what is perceived to be C-suite risk appetite.”
