I have previously written about the role of the modern Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and how CISOs align their security programs with the business operations of their companies. That article discussed the changing roles CISOs are now assuming as organizations mature and employ security leaders in positions that support strategic business goals.
In retrospect, I wrote that article more about the job and less about how CISOs view the job and the challenges they face. So keeping this in mind, I want to look at how CISOs view the challenges of their jobs. This article will focus on six domains that impact CISOs personally and professionally in their dynamic roles. These domains are barriers to success, obligations, authority, technology, risk management and, finally, the pros and cons of today’s reporting structure.
