For an organization's security program to thrive, the CISO and CIO must be on the same page when it comes to implementations and budgetary concerns.
In light of the skills shortage and the highly competitive CISO job market, careful succession planning is the key to leaving your company in good hands.
Hiring a CISO is more about finding gaps, committing to new ideas and bringing those ideas to life than it is about finding the right person for the job.
Although governance, risk and compliance are critical to enterprise security, many IT professionals struggle to secure executive buy-in for GRC tools.
Insights into the psychology of security can help IT professionals get executives and employees on board with security initiatives and best practices.
The next-generation CISO must take charge of board meetings to spread awareness among executives of the crucial link between security and business goals.
Security leaders must communicate effectively with executives and monitor users for signs that the organization is about to suffer a security breach.
