The Chief Security Officer (CSO) leads operational security and risk management activities with the aim of enhancing the value of the organization. Reporting directly to the CEO, the CSO manages a team of security professionals who safeguard the company’s assets, intellectual property, and systems, as well as the physical safety of employees and customers. Unlike the CISO, the CSO is responsible for the physical security, data privacy and the safety of employees, assets, and facilities.
CSOs need to be able to use security, risk management, and critical infrastructure protection tools, as well as knowledge of law enforcement and cyber and physical security systems.
