Session 5-3

The CDO Is Responsible for Increasing the Value of the Organization’s Data, Shouldn’t the CDO Also Worry About Protecting That Data?

← Back to Agenda

In many cases the CDO is responsible for increasing the value of the organization’s data. But valuable data is also appealing to cyber attackers who might want to steal that data or hold it hostage. Most organizations have a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) responsible for overall cybersecurity. What role should the CDO play? An important challenge for the CISO is to protect the organization’s “crown jewels” – who knows them better than the CDO? On our panel we have both CDO’s and CISO’s to discuss how they work together and where the responsibilities are divided. We encourage the audience to discuss how they addressed these issues in their organizations, and the lessons learned.
