Getting to Yes 

C-Suite Strategies for the CISO


Featuring Don Kleoppel, CSO Cerner Corporation 

Your role as a CISO is arguably the most challenging at the C-level today. Fulfilling the mandate to secure the organization effectively depends on C-Suite backing.  And this requires a range of skills that weren’t in your original CISO job description: fluency in business leadership, strategy, risk management and communication.

This webinar – which is more like a discussion among peers – will focus on reframing the conversation around security in a way that resonates with the C-Suite, using a language and frameworks that help you get to ‘yes’.

Join a conversation with security veteran Don Kleoppel and security and risk expert John Hellickson, about what helps and what hinders powerful executive presence.  

  • Tools and methods to contextualize security in the business strategy and objectives
  • Approaches for effective business enablement & partnership with other executives
  • Proven tactics to build consensus and get to ‘yes’
  • Effective workload management strategies for the expanded role – operational and leadership
