The Importance of "S" in "CISO"
A Chief Information Security Officer is the brigadier general of the security force of an organization. While the c-suite normally looks at the financial and overall management of an organization, it is up to the CISO to bring in the security aspect, keeping the organization safe from data breaches that could result in financial loss and reputational damage. In the year 1994, a Russian hacker, Vladimir Levin, targeted Citigroup with a series of cyber-attacks. To cope with the situation, the bank formed the first cybersecurity team and hired Steve Katz as the CISO. According to Katz, the CISO plays an important role in interpreting the headlines and understanding the requirements of the security plan.
