Can the CCO and CISO Work in Harmony?

  • The TalkTalk data breach, in particular, saw “free rein” given to the CISO to strengthen the organization’s cybersecurity strategy in an effort to keep the hackers at bay.
  • The chief cybercrime officer (CCO) – this role is responsible for ensuring the organization is cyber-ready and is in charge of mitigating breaches, taking the lead if a breach does arise and providing the much-needed link between the board and the rest of the company to reduce risk and work collaboratively to resolve issues as they occur.
  • With it being well-documented that cybersecurity must become far more central to C-suite strategies, this role eases the load on the CISO and makes sure the organization can get—and stay—one step ahead of hackers in the continuous cybercrime race.
