Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) develop information security policies and procedures for a business or organization. They manage teams of security analysts, information security specialists, and fellow executives to identify and manage security threats for the business. CISOs work in organizations across all sectors, carefully monitoring for security vulnerabilities and allocating resources to increase efficacy and efficiency.
CISOs need education and experience in cybersecurity, computer software and hardware, and the applicable regulations and compliance requirements. CISOs are also expected to understand security technology such as DNS, routing, authentication, VPN, proxy services, ethical hacking, and firewall intrusion protocols.
