The aim of this study is to determine a set of skills needed for a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) in a competitive business today. To this end, a review of the literature and IT security executive interviews were conducted to identify a set of relevant skills. This list was then compared to a set of job listings for CISOs. Ultimately, a set of skills were developed that organizations can use when defining the CISO position and seeking new CISOs.
