At Nightfall, we believe in the power of learning from those who have done it before. That’s why we created CISO Insider — a podcast interview series that features CISOs and security executives with a broad set of backgrounds, from hyper-growth startups to established enterprises. Through these interviews, we’ll learn how industry experts overcame obstacles, navigated their infosec careers, and created an impact in their organizations.
The world is changing at a pace not seen in modern history. Security leaders, including chief information security officers (CISOs), face new security challenges as well as opportunities. As COVID-19 drives workers to look for new ways to live and work, organizations must be proactive.

Security is now a top priority for businesses worldwide. One of the highlights of my work at Splunk is when I host Splunk’s CISO Customer Advisory Board meetings with security leaders representing Fortune 500 and mid-sized enterprises from all industries. These strategic meetings focus on top of mind issues for CISOs and key market trends.

The news is routinely cycling through stories of the latest security breach and subsequent fallout. Given that no industry is immune to security threats, we’re betting a silent night is at the top of the wishlist for most security professionals.
It’s that time of the year again when we set resolutions to create better communities and selves. Many of us will resolve to do more and to do better, and, for a time, we will. With most resolutions, however, human nature inevitably sets in. We fall back to our old habits, while that new treadmill starts to gather a layer of dust.
