The CISO's Gambit podcast is a pragmatic cyber risk dialogue between cyber security leaders from leading organizations, like Zscaler. Topics span technical and non-technical aspects of cyber risk, cybersecurity, privacy, transformational change management, and the evolving role of the CISO as a thought leader and change agent. The podcast covers current risks, what's on horizon, and how CISOs can help deliver business value that lowers risks, flattens the total cost of controls, and reduces security friction on user experience and business velocity.
