Security leadership has come a long way since the days when the CIO – and later CSO or CISO – was required to just be an information security or “cyber” expert. Running a security department now requires not just technical acumen but also business acumen. But the best organizations take it even further, by creating converged programs, says Roland Cloutier, CSO of Roseland, NJ-based global business outsourcing services provider ADP.
Conceptually, this isn’t a complicated approach. “Convergence is simply this: managing your security business better, for your business,” he says.
