Allan is joined this week by Emilio Escobar, CISO at Data Dog and former VP of Information Security at Hulu. He is also a long-term developer of Ettercap, a comprehensive suite for man-in-the-middle attacks.
Like many of us, Emilio started his journey in infosec as a hacker kid, exploring the world through modems and BBSs. Emilio is not a security vendor CISO, but is a CISO for a company that is in the supply chain for many other companies. He has to balance internal and external duties as a result.
Come listen as Allan and Emilio discuss the B2B CISO life, the skills required, business alignment, facing customers, and how all of these skills just might define "the modern CISO".
And, yes, they even tackle the age-old question, "How technical should a CISO be?"
