The typical CISO deals with application reviews, firewalls, anti-malware tools, data leakage prevention and a variety of other technical challenges and tools. However, as we have seen by all of the large breaches, tools alone do not help us. We must have a strategy to manage overall information risk. The same can be said with regard to our spiritual life. You can have all of the tools, read the bible, regularly attend church and even regard yourself as a “good” person but what is your view of Jesus Christ? Do you believe, understand and apply His word to your daily life? Do you have others that can help hold you accountable? He has a perfect strategy for our lives if we submit to Him. Join us for this discussion on lessons learned, from building risk management programs with business partners to building a relationship with Christ.
