Part 2: Mental health and the CISO
In the second of our monthly series, Andy Bates will welcome Jessica Bell, Node4’s Engagement Partner, for an open discussion on how mental health plays a huge part in the daily life of a CISO.
Often seen as the only defence between a business and its next cyber attack, CISO’s face a huge amount of stress on a daily basis. So together, Andy and Jess will look at ways to improve CISO wellbeing and ultimately business performance.
Andy has over 30 years experience in the cybersecurity space, which has lead to time with the UN, Europol and Interpol, amongst others, so fully understands the pressure that CISO’s are under.
These events run on the 3rd Thursday of the month and each will feature a special guest from the world of cybersecurity. December’s event will be announced soon.
Andy has worked in telecomms and IT for 30 years, mostly building large secure networks for governments and secure enterprises in places such as Cable and Wireless and Verizon.
Working in secure networks has led to being in the cyber security space, which has lead to time with the UN, Europol and Interpol, amongst others.
Having spent the early years of her career in customer services and learning and development, Jess now specialises in wellbeing, CSR, employee engagement and diversity and inclusion.
With 6 years in the industry, Jess focuses on achieving optimum levels of employee engagement by giving employee experience the spotlight that it deserves. Jess’s ethos is that happy and healthy colleagues encourage great organisational culture and subsequently enhanced performance.
