csrutil enable 

I tried on a Mac intel chip 2017 and it runs perfectly fine. Not sure what to change for the M1 chip here.

VirtualBox does not run on an ARM chip such as the M1.
There's a long discussion on it here - https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=98742

Parallels have a functional beta & VMWare say there's one 'on the way' but as far as I know the only one that claims to be fully functional is UTM, which I haven't tried myself.
There's a setup guide on OWC's blog - UTM: Run Virtual Machines On Your Apple Silicon M1 Mac
