On June 24, 2019, the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) published an article on how no C-level role has evolved as quickly and radically as the chief information security officer (CISO).

The CISO role first sprang from the ground-breaking “mega breaches” of the early 2000s, when it became apparent that cybersecurity issues could have serious business ramifications. Back then, the role was largely technical in nature (they would put up a technology perimeter to stop breaches from happening) and, really, it was C-level in name only—most CISOs reported to chief information officers and did not have a direct line to the CEO like other C-level executives.

Review the full article on the NACD's website.
