    What is a CISO?

    The CISO, or Chief Information Security Officer, is responsible for planning, implementing, and overseeing an organization's security measures to protect its data, systems, and networks from cyber threats. The CISO is typically a member of the executive team, and may be responsible for managing a team of security professionals.

    What role does a CISO play in an organization?

    A CISO is important to an organization because they’re responsible for developing and overseeing the organization’s overall security strategy and coordinating security operations.

    A CISO ensures that the organization has the right security controls in place to protect its data and IT systems, as well as assure they’re compliant with applicable laws and regulations. The CISO also works to detect, prevent, and respond to any cybersecurity threats or breaches.

    By helping to reduce the risk of security incidents, a CISO helps protect an organization’s reputation, brand, and bottom line.
