by Tom August,

Summary : What are the key things for a new CISO to consider? As Tom August of John Muir Health points out, every business is different — and understanding the business is critical before building a security plan. Whether a CISO is evaluating an existing program or creating one from scratch, creating a bulletproof security strategy starts with a fundamental understanding of the business, a simple risk assessment and cross-departmental leadership vetting. August shares his steps to create a security road map that is simple, explainable and establishes credibility to position the CISO as a trusted authority within the organization.
