07 May 2017 How CISOs Should Address their Boards About Security [62969]
Network World, April 25th 2017

"Don't wait until after a breach to talk with your board of directors. Have regular discussions to make sure you're on the same page on security priorities," writes Michelle Drolet in Network World.

"There are two times you might have to talk to your organization's board of directors about security: before a breach and after. Be sure you've had the former before you need to have the latter.

The board of directors, whose duty it is to run the company in the long-term interest of the owners, needs to know you've taken prudent steps to protect the organization's digital assets.

02 May 2017 IT Security From The Start: 3 Ways To Make It A Business Priority [63040]
The Enterprisers Project, May 2nd 2017

Is it the sole responsibility of IT, the CISO's job, or is it a business problem? From my point of view, if you don't think security is part of your job, you become part of the problem. To truly secure the enterprise, security must become central to everyone's role.
