CISO Insider

Jan 12, 2022

In our Season 3 premiere of CISO Insider, Acquia VP of Security and CISO Robert Former discusses working as a cybersecurity leader today. Robert shares how radical transparency has helped him at every step of his career: making the right decisions for his org by accepting the right levels of risk, effectively managing data security and compliance in a Platform as a Service environment, and maintaining the connections necessary to make remote work successful. We also get into what ethical hacking really means and the importance of securing user data in his dual role at Acquia as the steward of security operations and governance. You’ll hear the straight talk with a sense of humor on cybersecurity in our chat with Robert today.
