I just took a few notes and, seemingly, there are three major kinds of personalities for a CISO:
- The pilot,
- The architect, IT urbanist,
- The administrator.
I was also interested in this definition they gave: "The CISO is the one who defends the ITsec budget."
Finally, they described an evolution in the profile of CISOs:
- In the 1990's, people became CISO by opportunism,
- In the 2000's, people became CISO through competition,
- In the 2010's, people are becoming CISO by choice or by vocation.
