As CISOs have evolved beyond security practitioners into business leaders, the required aptitudes and skills have changed as well. Security leaders must now be able to eliminate the geek-speak and articulate their program mission, vision and goals in a clear and meaningful way. Effective communication is key to fostering an organizational culture of security and ensure program buy-in and support from leaders and staff.

In this session, Terry Ziemniak, CISO at Carolinas Healthcare System, one of the largest not-for-profit systems in the country, draws on 20+ years of overseeing cybersecurity programs to share with attendees his proven success in vocalizing, building, executing, and improving security programs.

One of the best ways learn is to network with your peers. This session will provide an opportunity to meet speakers and attendees who have similar privacy and security challenges and discuss solutions to those challenges.

Here's how it works:

Speakers will be stationed at different tables in the ballroom, and attendees can circulate and speak one-on-one or in groups with individual speakers. The speakers have been assigned different topics, but other topics can also be addressed.

Mingle, share and learn in this interactive environment.
