The essence of the role of Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) has significantly evolved over the last decade, now demanding a more business-oriented approach and improved communication skills with all stakeholders to prevent security failures. A press Q&A at CPX 2024 highlighted how digital transformation and the broadening of the corporate attack surface due to actions like remote working have shifted CISO responsibilities from being primarily technical to increasingly business and socially focused. Successful CISOs are now distinguished not just by their ability to manage cybersecurity but also by their soft skills and their involvement in strategic decisions, employee relations, and creating a proactive security culture. The discussion exemplifies the changing nature of the CISO role, emphasizing leadership, business management skills, and strategies like moving towards "passwordless" systems to enhance security while easing user experience. Collaborations with executives and educating board members on cybersecurity's role in strategic decisions are crucial steps for modern CISOs to align security initiatives with business objectives.
