As a CISO, experience in a broad range of business functions incorporating security often paves the way for future career growth and with an evolving cybersecurity industry, opportunities arise for some CISOs to reshape the way their organization sees them; from a security office into a “trust office.”

The basic pillars of being a global CISO

The CISO’s role often encompasses a host of responsibilities, including: security, which is, operations, corporate, product, customer, production, and automation.

It also includes compliance, undergoing audits and certifications throughout each year. For these pillars to hold strong, you need to maintain trust between platforms, products, and customers. Quality management, data protection, privacy principles, customer advocacy and risk and assurance make up the rest of the CISO puzzle.

  • Empathy in the professional realm
