Summary

Tech execs welcoming a new CISO to the organization should consider themselves enablers, first and foremost, and help the CISO unlock opportunities by capitalizing on the momentum that a new leader taking the reins can create. CISOs who fail to execute well in their first 100 days risk alienating stakeholders and isolating themselves. They must understand what the firm does, what its growth areas are, which leaders and stakeholders are involved, and how security propels the firm’s goals. This report shows tech execs how to increase the likelihood of success by helping CISOs gain situational awareness, cultivate relationships, and establish the guiding principles of the security culture they want.
