FAIRCON2020 Preview: How to Become a Business-Centric CISO – Omar Khawaja, Highmark Health

Omar Khawaja - FAIRCON2020Your infosecurity budget is being challenged – it may be that you’ve positioned your security program only as a cost center, not a builder of business value.  

Catch this session at the 2020 FAIR Conference, “Managing Risk in Times of Crisis – Applying FAIR to Become More Business-Centric during COVID”, 1:15-1:45 PM, Tuesday, October 6 and learn how Highmark Health CISO Omar Khawaja in response to the COVID crisis radically re-focused security as a cost-saver for the organization with the help of risk quantification.

Omar will share his success at achieving objectives such as: 

  • Communication strategies to get the business to “actually want to invest in security” 
  • A framework for assessing security expenditures based on business outcomes 
  • How to “sunset” controls that don’t pay their way in delivering measurable value  

He will also answer your questions on applying the Highmark experience to your business environment.  

Omar has been audience favorite in his previous FAIR Conference appearances. Watch the video of his 2018 talk: FAIRCON18 Video: A Master Class on Reporting Cyber Risk to the Board
