What's it Take to be a CIRO?

Interview with Steve Katz on the Challenges of Becoming a CIROUp until now, most organizations have kept information security and risk under the same umbrella. But increasingly these same groups are blazing separate paths for Chief Information Security officers (CISO's) and Chief Information Risk Officers (CIRO's).

So, what's it take to be a CIRO?

Steve Katz, the world's first CISO, discusses:

  • The fundamental differences between a CISO and CIRO;
  • How to transition into the CIRO role;
  • Advice for leaders looking to make this move.

Katz is a prominent figure in the network security discipline. Since 1985, he has served as the senior security executive for Citibank/Citigroup, JP Morgan, and most recently Merrill Lynch - and has been a force in raising the visibility and shaping the direction of the security industry at industry and government levels.

Deeply respected within both the financial services and security industries, Katz has testified to Congress on information security issues and was appointed as the Financial Services Sector Coordinator for Critical Infrastructure Protection by the Secretary of the Treasury.

Other credentials include: Founder and Chairman of the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center; Chairman of the American Bankers Association Information Systems Security Committee; Vice Chair, Financial Services Roundtable-BITS Security and Risk Assessment Committee; member of the New York Clearinghouse Banks Data Security Officers Committee; and member of the Securities Industry Association Information Security Committee.
