Security leaders in the health care, financial services, and energy and utilities sectors must pay special attention to industry-specific security risks.
Regardless of a company's size, the value of building a strong security posture will always outweigh the cost of security.
CISO reports must clearly illustrate how cybersecurity relates to business objectives in a way that board directors can understand.
The CISO can positively impact both organizational security and his or her own professional brand through thought leadership.
CEOs often lack security awareness because IT professionals fail to communicate risks in the context of the organization's bottom line.
Today's CISO needs to be more than just a security leader. The role now demands constant communication, continuous education and acute business sense.
To protect their networks from malicious insiders, user negligence and other threats, CISOs need advanced machine learning capabilities such as UBA.
Board directors must become more engaged in cyber risk governance or risk incurring regulatory fines and being sued by shareholders.
Critical elements of the CISO job description are often overlooked, exposing enterprise data and individual employees to cyberthreats.
When recruiting talent to close the cybersecurity skills gap, employers must demonstrate their commitment to security research, education and knowledge.
