              Roadmap to the CISO

              Will You be C-level or Just Have the Title?

              The role of a CISO is evolving from a technologist to a business leader whose responsibilities include partnering with many aspects of the business to communicate and mitigate risk across the entire organization.

              Taking on this management advisory role, the modern day CISO is required to be a security advocate on a wide range of topics that affect business performance including HR, digital and physical security, vendor and partner management, and regulatory compliance. What is more, they are called upon to report to Boards and the C-suite in language that non-technical business leaders can understand and act upon. They must translate very complex technology metrics into plain English about levels of risk and the capabilities used to reduce risk and crisis management when a breach occurs.

              In short, the CISO is following the same evolutionary trajectory as the Chief Information Officer and Chief Financial Officer -- by continuing to take on and be responsible for more strategic organizational responsibilities. In this white paper, you will learn more about the evolution of responsibilities for the modern CISO, the technical and business skills that provide a foundation for aspiring CISOs, and recommendations to set yourself on a trajectory to become a successful CISO.

              What you will learn:

              • The evolution of responsibilities of the CISO
              • The technical and business skills required (according to actual CISO job postings)
