As the role of technology leadership in the enterprise becomes more about managing third parties, battling complexity, controlling costs, supporting the business technology (BT) agenda, and aligning with business strategy, the role of the chief information security officer (CISO) is shifting to one of a business manager who specializes in change management and process oversight. This trend is giving CISOs their long desired opportunity to interact with the high-level business decision-makers; however, it’s also driving a difficult metamorphosis. CISOs will need to realign their priorities and build new skills if they want to remain in their jobs. This report highlights the dramatic changes occurring in the business world generally, and the information security function specifically, and what all this means for the career paths of security and risk (S&R) professionals moving forward. This report was originally published on September 6, 2013; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy, and this time found that only light changes were needed, and updated it accordingly as of August 2014.
