To meet the increasing demand that regulatory bodies are placing on boards of directors and the ongoing need for executive teams to identify and elevate security managers to the position of CISO (or similar), Bill, Gary, and Matt have created a special abridged version that combines key messaging and guidance from Volume 1 and Volume 2 and provides a CISO’s eye view of the role of the CISO and the information security department. The readers of this book will gain valuable insight into both the internal and external obligations placed on the CISO. They will also learn about the myriad requirements placed on their organization that require executive sponsorship and participation.
This book is a companion to the CISO Desk Reference Guide Volumes 1 and 2. It does not replace that two-volume set, but instead prepares senior leadership to identify, recruit, and support CISOs that would be best qualified to lead this increasingly important position.
