High-profile data breaches have vaulted cybersecurity to the top of the agenda at every organization. They have also completely rewritten the leadership requirements needed in the sector. A chief information security officer and his or her team must be able to advise the board and the CEO, enable and lead a security-minded culture, and stay in tune with advance on artificial intelligence, machine learning and the Internet of Things.
At Egon Zehnder, our Cybersecurity Practice helps organizations evaluate the structure of their cybersecurity function, build teams with the right competencies, and recruit leaders who can balance security requirements with business objectives. We help refine role constructs and career tracks that increase talent retention and build robust, high performing information security teams. We also partner closely with fast-growing cybersecurity firms and traditional companies to help them identify, assess, and develop leaders who can help them scale rapidly and strategically.
