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.

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.
