The city of San Diego is a $4 billion business and it doesn’t shut down. As you’ll hear in this discussion between Gary Hayslip, the city’s CISO, and David Cass, Global CISO IBM Cloud and SaaS, San Diego is a smart city which is continuously rolling out new technologies to facilitate 'the business' while bolstering its security.

In this podcast, recorded during the RSA Conference, Hayslip talks about joining the city as its first CISO some three years ago and how he established a five-year-plan which leveraged established frameworks like the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to increase the security of the city and its 24 networks and 40 departments. The two also discuss ‘cloud first’ initiatives, resilient networks and the role of the CISO, which Hayslip provides practical guidance on with his book “A CISO Desk Reference Guide: A Practical Guide for CISOs.”
