Re: CISO / board
 I guess that is true. If there is intention harming the business, anybody can find a way to do it.

Re: CISO / board
If the CISO answers to the CIO and the CIO wants to leave and take company information along, can the CIO not potentially impact security reviews in some fashion (as opposed to if the CISO answers to the board)?

Simply food for thought.

Re: Reconsidering Data Storage and Use of Traditional Files
Yes. These all make sense. It is not possible to bloke entire knowledge transfer for 100% tough.

Where CISO reports would not have any impact on this in my view, but I hear what you are saying.

Re: Audit Process
There may be exit questionnaire to understand if there was any leak of sensitive information. Other than that I guess it goes with other security measure such as making sure sensitive information does not leave the secure network.

c-level
 

Maybe I tis better to make c-level has a stake in the organization. They should own a few percentages of the organization so they do not exit for a better opportunity.

Reconsidering Data Storage and Use of Traditional Files
Someone like me looks at this all-to-familiar story and sees not a process issue but a data issue.  Too many companies that have critical information are still stuck in the old model of .doc .txt .pdf .vsd - you get the idea; files.  Moving forward we are looking at an era where files will no longer exist and the manipulation and sharing of data will not be done through the saving or emailing of a file.  Programs will store and display data and the computers used to do this will not allow screenshots and will block screen scrapers.  Special monitors will prevent photographs from being taken.  The problem has always been the data and its various file formats that are easily replicated.  We need to attack the issue there; rethink and redesign how critical data is created, managed and shared.

CISO / board
This is one of a number of reasons why some people believe that CISOs should answer directly to the board instead of to the CIO (or, for that matter, to another C-suite executive).

Of course, what do you do if the CISO is leaving?

Audit Process
Good article and all too true. Off boarding is not as rigorously performed like on boarding. It seems counterintuitive when realizing that you were privy to zero company data before and now you are well versed. Could DLP Discovery be helpful here to monitor employees leaving. What are some best practices here that may be helpful?
