“Accountability starts with the CEO, but information security is a shared responsibility across every function and level of an organization. Data breaches are a problem that the board-level executives need to be responsible for addressing, which means that the CISO must be involved in those board-level discussions. The board can’t take meaningful, productive risk management action without that expertise in the room” Tim Erlin – Vice President, Product Management and Strategy at Tripwire
