Brian Haugli: Livin’ La Vida CISO

According to our friends at Ponemon… in a 24 month period, a business has a 1 in 4 chance of being hit with a significant threat.


A separate study shows that nearly 75% of businesses do NOT have an established incident response strategy that is applied consistently across their organization.


In a Crisis Situation, the most scarce and precious resource a CISO has is time.


How a CISO implements his or her OODA Loop can make or break a company and a career.


What if you are a Small or Medium business who does not have a traditional C-Suite structure or security team?


What if you are a CISO and all eyes are on you?


Will you be ready?


Are you ready now?


What if we told you that there are companies out there who can help your organization deal with these crisis situations without the process and expense of hiring a full time CISO?


In this episode of the InSecurity Podcast, Matt Stephenson with Side-Channel Security co-founder and former CISO Brian Haugli. Brian has been around the CISO block more times than most and is the host of the #CISOLife series on YouTube. He is leading the charge to bring Enterprise Level CISO talent to mid-market companies in order to protect their business and keep the bad guys out.
