A new role for the cybersecurity industry: the Business Information Security Officer (BISO)

  • Traditionally, those working in the cybersecurity industry have been technically savvy and laser-focused on finding tools and solutions to ensure that data, and the people who access it, are secure from breach or attack.
  • Digital transformation, open supply chains and mobile devices have been changing this paradigm for some time, and we were all beginning to change our approach.
    • 2020 had other ideas.
  • The role undertaken by BISOs help to realise that because the goals, missions and workstreams of each business unit was different, they require different security and tech solutions to protect them.
  • BISOs should not only be well versed in the latest cybersecurity threats and technologies, but also great communicators and fast learners.
