The current security job market has become increasingly difficult to navigate for hiring managers and candidates alike. Many roles globally, sit vacant for months and the uncertainty this can cause for CIOs, on top of their mounting workload, is difficult to address and causes increased risk for the organisation.
This book provides a step-by-step framework to address the challenges of finding and retaining cyber security leaders. Guiding CIOs and their peers through the establishment of a Security Agenda, this straightforward framework doesn't end at contract signing. From establishing non-negotiable traits to ensuring the new leader effectively transitions into the role, The Secure CIO removes the burden of hiring a cyber security leader.
Written by respected information security blogger, Claire Pales, this book is for any CIO leading security staff - whether currently hiring or still considering the best way to address cyber risk in an organisation.
