Profiles in Leadership: Ashish KhannaEvalueserve's CISO on Why, Unlike CTO, CISO's Role Should Be Board-Facing
Ashish Khanna spent two decades in the hospitality industry as an information technology leader before becoming the CISO at Evalueserve, a global KPO supplying specialist services in research, analytics and data management.
"The IT head or a CTO role will always be at managerial and strategy level, while the CISO's role will be more board-facing," he says.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, as part of CyberEdBoard's ongoing Profile in Leadership series, Khanna discusses:
- The growing importance of CISO in a boardroom;
- The importance of cybersecurity in the hospitality industry;
- How critical it is to acquire new skills and training to safeguard digital assets from being compromised.
Khanna comes with two decades of experience in technology operations, IT strategy, security, application development, compliance and governance, and stakeholder management. Prior to joining Evalueserve, he served as deputy VP of IT at The Oberoi Group.
