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.
Just like security analysts, top executives need data breach training to develop the skills required to carry out an effective incident response strategy.
Many companies, including IBM, are taking a new collar approach and recruiting ex-military personnel to fill woefully understaffed cybersecurity positions.
Cybercrime awareness training is too crucial to be glossed over during onboarding or quickly rehashed at the end of the year.
To ensure a smooth transfer of security power, organizations should establish a definitive plan to appoint and develop a deputy CISO.
