This week’s episode is hosted by me, David Spark (@dspark), producer of CISO Series and Andy Ellis (@csoandy), operating partner, YL Ventures. Joining me is our guest, Trina Ford, CISO, iHeartMedia.

In this episode:

  • Why has the landscape for CISOs seemed particularly perilous in the past year?

  • Does there  seem to be more responsibilities with very real legal consequences attached to the role?

  • There is a lot of guidance out there for CISO candidates negotiating for a new position, but what can a current CISO do once they are already in the role?
