CISO Stories Podcast: Without Building a CISO EQ, You May Be On Your Own
The CISO must interact with many different groups within the company. These groups differ in the amount of business acumen and technical depth necessary. The CISO must have self-awareness of how to approach each of these different types of stakeholders, as well as ensuring appropriate self-care is taken to limit burnout, stress and anxiety.
Join us as we welcome special guest Marci McCarthy, CEO and President at T.E.N. Inc., to learn how CISOs can better maintain self-awareness, exercise empathy and emotional intelligence to gain trust of others, and exercise appropriate self-care.
