Profiles in Leadership: Mark EgglestonWhy CISOs Need More Focus on Mental Health, Mentoring, Third-Party Risk Management
Yes, a CISO must be technologist and a business risk leader. But more than ever, one also must be a bit of a counselor, says Mark Eggleston, chief information security and privacy officer of Health Partners Plans, who puts mental health support atop his own list of key responsibilities.
Eggleston is also a founding chair adviser for the CyberEdBoard Global Community.
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group as part of the CyberEdBoard's ongoing Profiles in Leadership series, he discusses:
- The CISO's role and responsibilities;
- The importance of openly discussing mental health issues;
- Key do’s and don’ts of third-party vendor risk management.
At Health Partners Plans, a Philadelphia-based health insurance company, Eggleston leads the maturation of various security technologies and privacy initiatives and manages a business continuity and disaster recovery program.
