Topic: “The Challenges and Opportunities Facing Today’s CISO”

It seemed like a visionary idea in the mid-1990’s – cyber security finally would be taken seriously by inventing a C-suite position. The CISO was born, and every organization wanted one. But unfortunately expectations and results through the years have not matched the outcome. Can a CISO ensure compliance with myriad regulations or international standards? Can a CISO provide for ROI and develop clear risk metrics? Can a CISO defend against the hoards of Chinese, Russian, Syrian, ISIS, and other hackers? The answer to all these questions seems to be a resounding no if you read the papers. This talk traces the history of the CISO, the unfulfilled dreams and hopes of both security practitioners and the companies that hire them, epic failures and successes, and what the future holds for this evolving profession in the face of advanced threats and technology change.

Among other things, she has counseled retailers on hardware and software upgrades, including those for payment card industry (PCI) compliance; has handled national breach notification issues under a variety of state laws; advised on disposition and use of health care records; advised on protection and unauthorized use of consumer credit information; and counseled on communication and customer relations following sensitive breaches.

She works with professionals across Georgia’s film, entertainment and music businesses on various matters. She has handled independent and documentary film productions, NCAA licensing of media and sponsorship rights, program distribution, and music issues involving talent and labels. She also works with a number of independent local studios on various corporate, licensing and industry-specific issues. Before joining Taylor English, Ms. Hill was assistant general counsel with Turner Broadcasting System Inc. During her 15-year career there, Ms. Hill oversaw a wide range of questions related to technology policy, intellectual property strategy and compliance, both in the United States and globally. Her work for Turner included technology licensing and maintenance; programming licensing for television and digital properties; distribution of programming on digital networks; regulatory compliance and training, including Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requirements and privacy; domestic and international programming sales; and general corporate secretarial matters.
