Navigating Executive Liability: Lessons From TSB CIO Carlos Abarca's Case

Abarca’s breach of Senior Manager Conduct Rule 2 was due to inadequate measures in ensuring compliance with PRA Outsourcing Rules during a data migration process, resulting in significant disruptions to TSB’s banking services and impacting a large portion of its 5.2 million customers.

These recent cases, including that of Joe Sullivan, former CSO at Uber, have once again brought to the forefront the heightened vulnerability of CISOs and CIOs to executive liability, where decision-makers assume personal responsibility for their professional actions.

In this exclusive session, the panelists will discuss how these outcomes can influence the responsibilities and expectations of security leaders and take a deep dive into:

  • What the Joe Sullivan verdict portends for the security profession globally;
  • What the case tells us about personal liability under GDPR;
  • Practical steps security leaders should take today to guard against their own liability.

Budget Management for CISOs: Securing Information Assets From Within and Between

Effectively budgeting for internal security, while fortifying information exchange with third parties, is complicated by an increased attack surface, market volatility, and global supply chain disruption. Today’s CISO plays a pivotal role in shoring up defenses on both fronts and protecting each link in the chain.
 
This session will break down the intricate realm of fiscal management while ensuring the fortification of your systems. Panelists will discuss how and where to allocate limited resources to maximize ROI on cybersecurity investments.
 
Key topics include:
 
  • Vendor Assessment and Monitoring: Practical ways to make the most of your organisation’s security assessments of third-party vendors and strategies for continuously monitoring supplier protocols throughout the partnership.
  • Proactive versus Reactive Measures: How to create a dual approach to budgeting for proactive measures and preventive security controls, reactive measures and incident response plans.
  • Scalability: Consider the scalability of cybersecurity measures. As supply chain components expand or contract, ensure that the budget allocation strategy can adapt accordingly.
  • Personnel Utilization: Employ a tactical approach for deployment of human capital, ensuring sustained coverage between security architects, penetration testers and analysts.
  • Adaptive Strategy: Implementing a dynamic budget allocation strategy takes into account evolving threats, changes in the supply chain landscape, and emerging technologies to ensure that resources are allocated where they are most needed at any given point.
