The Chief Information Security Officer
The role of the Chief Information Security Officer has evolved enormously in recent years in response to security threats and a challenging business environment. Instead of being primarily a master technician, today’s CISO has to be a trusted advisor to senior management.

The successful CISO needs to have excellent communication and presentation skills, and to demonstrate keen business acumen. The serious and ever-changing nature of today’s security threats demand a strategic-minded response, and a successful CISO will always be thinking about how to gain business objectives through enabling technology while properly managing risk.
