Re: BA degree in business?
The CISO is, in my mind, more on the financial side of the equation than the IT side of the equation -- especially if the CISO is also responsible for general data privacy measures/compliance.  Security, privacy, data protection -- these are all risks.  As such, they fall under the heading of risk management -- finance.

Compare the CIO, who is more involved with IT as a whole.

Re: OWASP top 10 CISO
Good point. An information security officer has to have a good understanding of both application and network architecture. It does not matter at what layer the vulnerability is.

Good to know. I will check this. Everybody needs some type of security awareness training I would say.

OWASP top 10 CISO
Recently, we had at discussion at OWASP regarding the Top 10 CISO, from our point of view this person should have a programming background in order to make sure that application security gets the attention it needs. We are quite afraid that most CISO focuses only Network security and ignore App security.Also , a potential inability to communicate with Application Developer teams and understand their issues and needs.
