The scope of skills and expertise demanded of an organisation’s chief information security officer (CISO) is evolving from a purely technical focus to one that ensures strategic alignment with business objectives. Forrester’s analysis demonstrates that CISOs turn to information security consulting providers to strengthen key capabilities that are often better handled by others. Consulting partners can provide strategic guidance, technical and advisory expertise, and threat insight based on a breadth of client experience.
