From CISO to CEO

A CISO's frequent challenge is how to report to their top level management. This is not due to lack of security dashboards. On the contrary, there are too many of them, and they are too technical. 
Richard Skjærstad has invited Gjert Tronstad who has spent a significant amount of time in trying to bridge the gap from security insights to a CxO level to comfort his management. 
Together with Nesibe Simsek they have started an initiative to extract and aggregate information translated to an always updated and easy to read management KPI's.
