You, my friend, have picked a strange career. It can be a thankless job while at the same time being personally rewarding. So, where are you headed as a CISO? Are you destined to repeat the mistakes of the past, or are you going to continue to be a trailblazer in a still emerging field? Much of the choice will be yours. I’ve tried to share some of my practical lessons and observations; you will have your own. I urge you to record them and pass them along to others.
