It is in the best interest of the CISO to address product security
Traditional CISO responsibilities and the role of the Product Security Officer are conflating, and this presents a tangible opportunity for CISO's wishing to get more involved with "the business". It doesn't necessarily take a security incident to trigger this either - inside the medical device manufacturing industry for example we have seen sophisticated Product Security Officers grow into the CISO role, taking product security teams along with them. The result is a shift in culture for a traditionally internally-oriented organization to now include (or even prioritize) protection of the product, and by extension, the customer. Overall this serves as another career springboard for the CISO: from strategic risk leader to business leader.
