Digital transformation has become a key initiative for many companies, made easier by the development of user-friendly cloud-native technologies such as containers and Kubernetes. This year, the COVID-19 outbreak has pushed companies even further to accelerate their digital journeys. While security is constantly being addressed as a key concern, it should also be seen as a key element.
Done right, security can remove barriers to digital transformation and accelerate faster adoption. Not only can it help the company avoid increased risk, but it can also proactively reduce it. To do this, CISOs must evolve in their role and become transformation leaders who can strengthen the business and drive innovation.
Therefore, CISOs need to embrace the digital transformation, learn the benefits of new technologies, and understand the incremental changes they are introducing in previous security practices.
