I really enjoyed the comments from Richard and Andy in the video. I can relate to their comments and truly believe if all a CISO can do is talk about jargon and risks at a technical level, they will never be truly appreciated by their business peers.
We need to hone our communication skills and speak to business in their terms. It’s a tough skill to master, but when you begin focusing your message at a business level, you’ll see a far different response from business leaders. I’ve watched it – it’s interesting to see how your position in an organization can change if you focus on supporting the business and become an enabler, instead of someone who can only say “no”.
