Cybersecurity leadership courses traditionally focus on imparting subject matter expertise, but the next generation of CISOs must also be trusted advisors.
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.
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.

The CIO's role in security includes understanding the company's key vulnerabilities, spreading internal awareness and communicating with top executives.
