Less than 50% of the Fortune 500 have a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or Chief Security Officer (CSO) listed on their executive team. Why is that? Is this role not considered an executive position? In part 1, we debate the role of the CISO/CSO and whether it is or is NOT and executive position.

Will the role continue to get a seat at the table as a C-level executive or will it atrophy back to a VP or Director role? If the CISO/CSO is still an executive position, then what are the requirements of this role? In part 2, we debate the requirements of the CISO/CSO role and expectations of the organization.
