The COVID-19 pandemic led to a surge in remote work, prompting organizations to quickly adopt remote collaboration tools. However, ensuring robust security for remote access has been a challenge. To address this, Cisco partnered with Forgepoint Capital, NightDragon, and Team8 to create the 2023 CISO Survival Guide, a framework for CISOs to secure modern enterprises by focusing on identity, data, code, and infrastructure. The guide highlights the need for unified identity management solutions, balancing data protection with use, securing the software supply chain, and prioritizing cloud security. Emerging technology startups offer solutions to help CISOs stay ahead of evolving threats.
