The chief security officer (CSO) has a lot of responsibility on his / her plate. Responsible for the development, implementation and management of the organization’s corporate security vision, strategy and programs, the CSO must not only bridge the gap between staff and the C-level employees to ensure adequate support for security initiatives, but must also stay abreast of the ever-changing security landscape.

  • Consumerization of IT
  • Cloud Computing
  • Advanced Persistent Threat
  • Expanding Importance of Identity
  • Increased Government Role in Cybersecurity
