The Shifting Role of the CISO: Checkmarx & AWS
Trusted by The World's Leading Enterprises
In Checkmarx’s recent survey of 200 CISOs, 84% responded that they are called upon to help close sales either often, or very often. This is one new challenge among many brought on by digital transformation: CISOs are no longer only responsible for trust and compliance but also, increasingly, for revenue enablement. For CISOs to be successful here, robust application security is vital.
Taking on application security is no easy feat. Attackers are becoming increasingly sophisticated and finding ways to exploit application development. With the supply chain more susceptible to attacks, buyers are becoming increasingly concerned with the security of the software they purchase. What does this mean for CISOs?
It means you (CISO) must navigate the challenges of digital transformation: managing the sprawl of cloud native application development, inserting security into DevOps practices (DevSecOps), controlling costs with limited resources, and now: being asked to join in on the sales process to discuss the security of your products. In other words, you are being tasked with greater responsibility.
That said, as you become more involved in the sales process, you help enable revenue, granting you more leverage within your organization.
In this webinar we'll delve into:
- The shift of the CISO role to a revenue enabler.
- How the strength of your AppSec process is increasingly valuable in sales enablement.
- How to maximize your budget and resources given the current economic environment.

For the source code analysis, one of the biggest advantages of Checkmarx SAST is that it is super easy to set up a project. We didn’t need to change the structure of the repository.
Head of Secure Development Support
We were thrilled to find Checkmarx, which helped us improve the SLA for identifying and remediating risk, reduce risk and the number of vulnerabilities, and eliminate high- and medium-risk issues.
