The traits of an effective CISO
Conclusion: There are a number of traits and behaviours to look for in an effective security leader, which are different from a traditional IT leader. The measure of an effective CISO is not whether their organisation has had a breach, or not. The measures of an effective CISO are the types of incidents their organisation has, and how their organisation responds to these. Consequently, an effective CISO is a requisite component for comprehensive risk management and organisational resilience.
