What is a CISO?

A Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is the senior-level executive within an organization responsible for establishing and maintaining the enterprise vision, strategy, and program with regards to the adequate protection of information assets and technologies. The CISO directs staff in identifying, developing, implementing and maintaining processes across the enterprise to reduce information technology risks. The CISO is also usually responsible for information related to compliance, for example, the ISO/IEC 27001 certification.

Why a CISO?

Organizations recognize the importance of having a security executive on the payroll because having solid security procedures and mechanisms in place is important in terms of business continuity. Protecting assets and managing risks and (security) incidents is the basics for a solid security.

How?

The ISO/IEC 27001 certification contains descriptions on how to implement the organizations' security policies and procedures. Although this certificate is not mandatory, organizations see the business value of implementing this norm, either fully or partially. This norm has a list of controls that describe how to implement security in every aspect of your organization: Asset management, Human Resources procedures for screening and awareness training, risk management, incident management, supplier relationships, business continuity, operational security and so on. This certification is not mandatory. However, implementing some or all of the controls has a real business value not only for the organization but also for its customers and suppliers.
