Comment on the 4 Signs Your Board Thinks Security Readiness Is Better Than It Is
It is not surprising to hear that top management knows little about real security threats and the value of ensuring that you have near to watertight security protocols to protect the future of your corporation. This all stems from the fact that IT governance is not aligned appropriately with corporate strategies. With this gap, there is no way for top management to appreciate the value of providing security to the corporate information. It is also the lack of showing how much the coporation loses due to security breaches. I fail to see a board members underestimating the importance of securing critical information if millions are lost due to security intrusions. A corporate strategy that does not take into account the risk of loss lacks the very fundamentals of appropriate stratgic goal setting and achievement.

Need for a CISO
This is precisely why organizations need a CISO. An individual who has a hybrid techincal/policy background to be able to delineate the need for pursing certain security endeavors. They will have a seat at the table and be able to display value in the form of metrics. But to truly have security be appreciated at an organization you need someone at the highest levels where its there number 1 priority so that those initiatives trickle down through the organization and are not pushed to the back burner due to lack of authority.
