"Heavy Lies the Crown" of Regulation and Compliance

We need to be minded of the job of a CISO as the person who answers for PCI-DSS, HIPAA, CCPA, GDPR, and other regulations in addition to their primary job of making sure the business operation runs securely without too much security and authentication friction.

The gap between resources and responsibility is hitting an all-time high for the CISO in the corporate world. A role meant for more than one person, that falls into the lap of one.

Eventually, the CISO’s head is the one on the chopping board in the event of a major breach. Not only do they need to manage the crisis in the round-the-clock warlike dynamics of response and recovery, but in the aftermath, they’re also the ones most likely to be let go. Not fair!

CISO, Respect!

A lot of respect and appreciation is due to today’s medical staff, there’s no doubt. But I would argue that we owe just as much to the cybersecurity teams keeping our businesses, economy, and in a sense, our livelihood, protected.

I call them Corporate Patriots™ - and they deserve our appreciation, gratitude, and respect during these hard times. The CISO’s role is one of the most difficult ones in the world. It’s a job for survivors.

During these pandemic days, the gap between the CISOs’ tasks and the means they have to perform them is reaching an all-time high. More attacks and more attack surfaces, with less budget and less staff. When you pile on the WFH challenges, I believe we can agree that this Cybertoon is actually an understatement of their realities.
