The turn of the calendar page is always a great time for self-reflection. But beyond redoubling efforts around the typical life goals of working out, eating right, and taking their vitamins, next year plenty of CISOs are likely to be focused on professional goals that will help them get ahead on the job and reduce risks for their organizations.

Re: Enough, PLEASE!
Dude, see those boxes surrounding the text you are reading?

They are called "ads". The "content" is used to drag your eyes across multiple "ads" thus generating multipliers of "revenue". The multiple pages of content are called "clickbait" whether its "ooh cyber security" or "ooh what they wore to the Grammys". Its the same sh*t, sherlock.

And these things make the Internet go around, cos the "revenue" is used to pay the "writers" of "content" which is turned into more "clickbait" to drag your eyes across more "ads".

Here endeth the lesson.
