Growing cybersecurity demands on companies require effective reporting lines and operational structures to manage cybersecurity-related job functions. Experts agree that it is optimal to have both a Chief Cybersecurity Officer or Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and a separate Chief Privacy Officer (CPO). Some companies confuse these positions, thinking “that the security person should know all things privacy and the privacy person should know all things security, and that is clearly not the case,” Michael Overly, a partner at Foley & Lardner told the Cybersecurity Law Report. In this two-part article series, we define and distinguish the roles of the CPO and CISO. Part One focuses on the CISO – including core responsibilities, best practices for structuring reporting lines, and considerations when hiring for the position – and Part Two will focus on the CPO.
In honor of International Women’s Day, some of ION Analytics' editorial teams led by women interviewed notable women in the markets and industries we cover. In this part, the Cybersecurity Law Report highlighted notable women in compliance and hedge fund, data privacy and cybersecurity, and anti-corruption law, including Amii Barnard-Bahn, Abigail Bell, Genna Garver, Jane Horvath, Barbara Li, Amy Mushahwar, Mara Senn and Carol Widger. The interviews are here.
