C-Suite Responsibilities: The Changing Role of the Chief Security Officer Evolving Concepts, Threats and Challenges for 21st Risk Management 5th December 2013, Central London Hosted By: David Rubens MD of David Rubens Associates C-SuiteResponsibilities: TheChangingRoleoftheChiefSecurityOfficer The role of the Chief Security Officer within the world of C-Suite decision-making and strategy- setting is one that has developed significantly over the last few years, but which to a large degree hasnotbeenreflectedinanequivalentdevelopmentintherangeofskillsandcapabilitiesthatthey are able to bring to the C-Suite conference table. In a world without frontiers, where organisations are expanding into non-traditional markets and where incidents can escalate to crisis, and crises todisastersinamatterofminutes,theabilityoftheCSOtoofferguidanceandanappropriatelevel of expertise in all areas of corporate security and risk management, both pre-emptively in identifying and offering solutions to potential problems and in responding and managing the reaction post-event, has never been more critical. Global communications and news coverage, together with the democratisation of information control through the spread of social media, has meant that the corporate CSO is no longer solely concerned with preventing loss and preserving life, but is critically involved in all aspects of maintaining corporate reputation, brand value and share price. BP and Deepwater Horizon, G4S and the London Olympics, Tesco and the ‘Horse-Burgers’, News International and the phone-hacking scandal, BBC and Jimmy Saville, Mid Staff NHS Trust and patient deaths, are all examples of where failures in organisational risk management has led to immediate and potentially catastrophic losses in public confidence, as well as the loss of income, business reputation and, in many cases, the jobs of top management. These were all situations thatshouldhavebeenidentifiedandhighlightedbytheCSO,andbroughttotheattentionofsenior management before they escalated to a stage where they threatened the continued existence of those organisations. However, rather than being confined to a ‘defensive’ role, the modern CSO also has to show that they can actively create value in the company, through the creation of greater opportunities and competitive advantages. The number of mega-cities (>10 million inhabitants) is set to grow from the current fifteen to thirty in the next fifteen years, and those cities will be the arena where major globalbrandsaregoingtobecompetingfortheirshareoftheemergingacquisitivemiddleclasses, whether it is for cars, houses, hospitals, schools and universities, shopping centres, leisure and entertainment,warehousing,transport,professionalservicesorthemyriadothersectorsthatthat expansion will create. It is the role of the CSO to ensure that their organisation is ready to take advantageoftheopportunitiesthatexpansionintoemergingnon-traditionalmarketswillbring,as well as being robust enough to deal with the challenges that they will undoubtedly raise. This seminar will take an in-depth look at the role of the modern CSO, examine what are the responsibilitiesthattheyareexpectedtotakeon,andshowhowtheycanbringalevelofexpertise, guidance and leadership – as well as a business perspective – that will enable them to fulfil their role as full partners in C-Suite deliberations.

As well as establishing the framework for ‘routine’ functions of the CSO, this session will examine the emerging challenges that will develop as the result of the opening up of non-traditional market places and the need to develop effective commercial practices able to operate in those environments. 10.45 – 11.45 ‘Give a Man a Fish…’: The CSO as Corporate Value Creator The saying ‘Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach him to fish, and you feed him for life’ is so well known that is it almost a cliché. And yet in much the same, way, the role of the CSO is not so much to solve problems as to create a ‘safe organisation’, educating the workforce, at every level from the CEO to the cleaners and car park attendants as to what it takes to create a modern, effective and, above all, safe and risk-aware community. This session looks at what is required to create a universal and comprehensive ‘security culture’ within organisations that might be operating across many divisions, geographic regions and business cultures. There is no aspect of an organisation’s activities that are not relevant to the CSO, and there are no areas where an effective CSO cannot improve performance. The modern CSO is a value creator, and their skills and experience should be as much a part of driving the corporate strategy as any other VP at the C- Suite table. 12.00 – 1.00 Information Protection and Cyber Security: You ARE being Targeted Cyber attacks are the single greatest threat to any organisation. In a reversal of traditional asymmetric warfare, rather than disempowered terrorists attacking nation states it is now national intelligence agencies that are targeting global commercial operations. This session, led a by an international authority on cyber threats and security, will look at how you are being targeted, and what you can do about it. 1.00 – 2.00 Lunch 2.00-3.00 ‘Right of Bang’: Crisis Management and Response ‘Right of Bang’ describes post-event responses, as opposed to ‘Left of Bang’ pre-emptive preventative measures. Whilst the CSO cannot prevent every potential corporate crisis, it is their responsibility to ensure that the organisation is prepared to move swiftly and effectively to respond to any emerging crisis, to act in a way that will limit the damage and allow the organisation to regain control of events, and at all times to maintain the reputation and value of the organisation in the wider market. All of the examples listed at the beginning of this information sheet escalated because the organisation concerned was not able to control the emerging situation, and it was the weak and ineffective secondary reaction (often led by the CEO), rather than the original problem, that caused the major damage to the organisation, 3.15 – 4.15 Media Management Media management plays a critical role in protecting an organisation’s public reputation, especially when there is a potential crisis on the horizon. CSO’s and CEO’s are rarely given time to prepare properly for the cameras and microphones when a major crisis develops, and yet it is their response that will decide, often in the first few minutes of confusion, how the story of that event will develop. This session, led by an experienced media commentator, will look at the issues around media management and crisis response, and will explain the issues that should be at the centre of corporate media management strategy. 4.00 – 5.00 Open Discussion It is expected that all participants in this event will bring their own skills, experiences and insights to the table, and that there will be real value in sharing those experiences in a round-table discussion with other like-minded practitioners. Although the whole day will be run in an open and fully inter- active way, the last session will create a space where the participants can share their ideas, as well as identify significant points for future investigation.
