Building Accountability for CybersecuritySaudi Telecom's Arwa Alhamad on Involving All Stakeholders
CISOs should democratize cybersecurity by making all the stakeholders accountable, says Arwa Alhamad, cybersecurity director at Saudi Telecom Co.
“They can democratize cybersecurity with automation through robotics, integrate the functions using DevSecOps, support the development teams in reviewing the code and, overall, make cybersecurity accessible to everyone,” she says.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group as part of its RSA Conference 2021 coverage, Alhamad, a speaker at the conference, offers insights on:
- Why CISOs need to look at the big picture through collaboration;
- The concept of bending instead of breaking when establishing business resilience;
- Making domains more difficult and expensive for attackers to target.
Alhamad is a cybersecurity enablement director at Saudi Telecom Co. She has 14 years of experience in cybersecurity, specializing in governance, risk and compliance. Her expertise spans local and global organizations in various industries.
