Jeff Snyder's Weekly Look Into What Makes a CISO / CSO Successful

A very busy Financial Services CISO shares his thoughts regarding what it takes to be a successful CISO.

1. A CISO must excel in negotiating skills. The ability to convince and negotiate a solution is a critical skill, especially in today's business environment where "getting it done, now, and cheaply" appears to rule business and risk decisions.
