Todays information security leaders are faced with unprecedented challenges: complexities of the broadening scope of regulations, the accelerated pace of new technologies introduced to the market, and rising levels of risks to their organizations. These are only a few of the challenges that are placing increased pressure on leaders to consistently deliver 24x7 on their promise to protect their organization and its customers. Where the lawmen of the mid-1800's, with badges pinned to their vests, were symbols of protection, so today are the executives that contributed to this book.
