Exploring information security: What is a Chief Information Security Officer

In the third edition of the Exploring Information Security (EIS) podcast my infosec cohort Adam Twitty and I talk to the Wh1t3 Rabbit, Rafal Los, about what exactly a Chief Information Security Officer, otherwise known as CISO, is.

Rafal Los (@Wh1t3Rabbit) is the Director of Solutions Research at Accuvant. He produces the Down The Security Rabbithole podcast and writes the Following the Wh1t3 Rabbit security blog. On several occasions he's tackled the CISO role within an organization on both his podcast and blog.  I would highly recommend both if you're in the infosec field or looking to get into it.

In the interview Rafal talks about:

  • What a CISO is
  • What role does a CISO fill in an organization
  • Who skills are needed to be an effective CISO
  • The different types of CISOs
