  • What does a CISO do now? It's a changing, increasingly vital role

    What does a CISO do in this day and age? The responsibilities of a chief information security officer, the senior executive responsible for an organization's information security program, are growing dramatically. Once relegated to the IT department -- if there was a designated corporate role at all -- the CISO is now often a member of the C-suite team, working alongside the CIO and others, formulating information security strategy and policy with an eye on both security and the business bottom line.

This quarterly supplement to Information Security magazine looks at the state of the CISO role -- how it's changed, where it's heading and what it takes to become an effective CISO in terms of cybersecurity skills, staff support and education.

    Organizations are increasingly looking to use cloud access security brokers to identify anomalies in data movement between on-premises and cloud apps as well as multiple cloud services. Malware identification and encryption of data have become important. More enterprises are also beginning to use CASBs or similar intermediary security technologies to provide some level of security policy management for custom identity-as-a-service platforms.

    In this issue of Information Security magazine, we look at cloud access security brokers and the best ways to evaluate new models, such as infrastructure as a service and platform security.
