Summary
CISOs face significant pressure due to the complex and expanding threat landscape, understaffed teams, and financial liability concerns. According to a Proofpoint report, 66% of global CISOs worry about personal, financial, and legal repercussions, and many prefer roles offering director and officer insurance. The cybersecurity hiring process is problematic, often requiring unrealistic qualifications that exclude capable candidates. Efforts like the White House’s push for skills-based hiring aim to address these gaps. The focus on skills over traditional degrees and internal hiring could alleviate some pressure on CISOs, allowing for more effective cybersecurity operations.
