The Business Of Security Podcast #31 – Transitioning CISO Responsibilities

This episode features guest Miguel El Lakkis. Miguel recently transitioned from News Corp to Cantor Fitzgerald and in this process he describes the method commonly used by CISO’s to properly transition a security program to a successor.  

We discuss the various aspects of a security program that may change over time and how to address constants to avoid duplication of efforts. The CISO responsibilities should be managed like a relay race not a marathon to make for a smoother transition now and into the future. 

Co-host Malcolm Harkins offers up another approach where the focus is on talent management and always identifying a successor for each role within the security program.
