In this special Ask the Expert video, SearchSecurity.com's resident security management expert Ernie Hayden answers a reader's question: You've said you believe every company needs a "security conscience." Can you describe this role, and should it be one of the CISO's responsibilities?
Hayden points to a 2012 security report from Carnegie Mellon University that showed many executives at Forbes Global 2000 firms are not involved in security and risk assessments and management. The "security conscience" must start with the CEO and board of directors, Hayden said, and work its way down to the CISOs and other managers.
