"Whether the 'C' in CISO is truly appropriate or just hand waving at a problem depends on the level of authority the CISO has in an organization and his/her interaction with executives," said Pete Lindstrom, research director, Security Products. "Because breaches often come full of 'stick' with very little 'carrot,' there can also be a backlash against security professionals. Luckily, this hasn't happened, and it appears that organizations are finally giving security and the attention they deserve."
