Re: More Effective CISO
The guidance may be finessed however the CEO must set the policy. This makes sense. Sometime CEO may choose to have more open system than a lucked down environment

Re: More Effective CISO
Security priorities are different depending on where you sit in the C-Suite. This is a very good point. Some CEO would not care about security unless company get hit.

Re: More Effective CISO
The concept of being more business minded is good but misses the mark I may agree with this. Business and security may not be aligned fully.

Security and business
Security and business may not be aligned fully, sometime customers go with features that compromise security.

More Effective CISO
The concept of being more business minded is good but misses the mark. Security priorities are different depending on where you sit in the C-Suite. The CEO should have a perspective that spans the organization. They know what is critical to running the organization and what is the most important. That direction needs to be provided to the CSO/CISO. The guidance may be finessed however the CEO must set the policy.
