Welcome to another live show of the Cyber Ranch! Allan is joined by Dan Doggendorf, a creative cybersecurity leader with a passion for simplicity, efficiency, accountability, common sense, and honesty. The duo discusses the ins and outs of being a VCISO, how one walks the path and what the industry can do to make this role better. This show was conducted at the Cybersecurity Conference 9 (CSC 9) conducted by the North Texas Chapter of ISSA.
