Caught in the crosshairs of “Leadership” and “Information Technology”, Information Security professionals are increasingly tapped to operate as business executives. This often puts them on a career path they did not expect, in a field not yet clearly defined. IT training does not usually includemanagerial skills such as leadership, team-building, communication, risk assessment, and corporate business savvy, needed by CISOs. Yet a lack in any of these areas can short circuit a career in information security. CISO Leadership: Essential Principles for Success captures years of hard knocks, success stories, and yes, failures. This is not a how-to book or a collection of technical data. It does not cover products or technology or provide a recapitulation of the common body of knowledge. The book delineates information needed by security leaders and includes from-the-trenches advice on how to have a successful career in the field. With a stellar panel of contributors including William H. Murray, Harry Demaio, James Christiansen, Randy Sanovic, Mike Corby, Howard Schmidt, and other thought leaders, the book brings together the collective experience of trail blazers. The authors have learned through experience—been there, done that, have the t-shirt—and yes, the scars. A glance through the contents demonstrates the breadth and depth of coverage, not only in topics included but also in expertise provided by the chapter authors. They are the pioneers, who, while initially making it up as they went along, now provide the next generation of information security professionals with a guide to success.

As organizations struggle to implement effective security measures, all too often they focus solely on the tangible elements, such as developing security policies or risk management implementations. While these items are very important, they are only half of the equation necessary to ensure security success. CISO Soft Skills: Securing Organizations Impaired by Employee Politics, Apathy, and Intolerant Perspectives presents tools that empower security practitioners to identify the intangible negative influencers of security that plague most organizations, and provides techniques to identify, minimize, and overcome these pitfalls. The book begins by explaining how using the wrong criteria to measure security can result in a claim of adequate security when objective assessment demonstrates this not to be the case. The authors instead recommend that organizations measure the success of their efforts using a practical approach that illustrates both the tangible and intangible requirements needed by a healthy security effort. The middle section discusses the root causes that negatively influence both a CISO and an organization’s ability to truly secure itself. These root causes include: Employee apathy Employee myopia or tunnel vision Employee primacy, often exhibited as office politics The infancy of the information security discipline These chapters explain what a CISO can do about these security constraints, providing numerous practical and actionable exercises, tools, and techniques to identify, limit, and compensate for the influence of security constraints in any type of organization. The final chapters discuss some proactive techniques that CISOs can utilize to effectively secure challenging work environments. Reflecting the experience and solutions of those that are in the trenches of modern organizations, this volume provides practical ideas that can make a difference in the daily lives of security practitioners.
