In today's digital age, the role of a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) has dramatically evolved. Beyond technical expertise, a CISO's responsibilities now encompass leadership, strategic planning, and effective communication with both technical and non-technical stakeholders. Measuring the success of a CISO can be challenging given the multifaceted and ever-evolving nature of cybersecurity.

However, with the increase of cyber threats and the ever-changing landscape of technology, the role of a CISO has had to evolve. Now, CISOs are responsible for protecting the entire organization, not just the computer systems. They are also responsible for helping the organization to be more secure and resilient, and for protecting it from cyber threats.
