CISO

View our 2018 and 2019 listing of information security (infosec) / cyber security training courses, events and conferences from around the world that are associated with CISO (Chief Information Security Officer).

A Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) controls information security issues in an organization and is responsible for securing anything related to digital information. The CISO and Chief Security Officer (CSO) roles may be interchangeable, but may also handle a company’s physical security.

A CISO maintains the security of an organization’s information technology (IT) systems. They must understand how to protect these systems with special hardware, software and secure business processes. Not only do they secure computer systems, but they also create, implement and communicate the organization’s digital information security policies and procedures. In the event of a confidentiality breach, they must know how to handle an emergency situation with an established business continuity plan (BCP).

They usually report to the Chief Information Officer (CIO), or other chief-level executive, and helps guide a company with a combined knowledge of business and technology. To increase employability, they may obtain an information security certification, such as the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP).
