Profiles in Leadership: Venu SriraTransforming Security to a 'Business Enabler'
Venu Sriraj, group CISO at a large financial services company based in UAE, urges other CISOs to work toward transforming the image of data security to "business enabler" rather than "roadblock."
"Practitioners must be more empathetic to the business needs," he says. "And business stakeholders should be more forthcoming in involving security in their decision-making processes."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group as part of the CyberEdBoard's ongoing Profiles in Leadership series, Sriraj discusses:
- His journey as a CISO;
- Technologies that show promise;
- Changes he'd like to see in the data security industry.
Sriraj, group CISO at a large financial services company in the United Arab Emirates, is the chief architect and strategist of the security program and cybersecurity initiatives.
