Forbes Reports That the title Chief Information Security Officer, or CISO, essentially the senior executive responsible for information security, emerged in the 1990s when the first large-scale cyberattacks began to occur. Since then, this role has become almost ubiquitous in any large organization that takes cybersecurity seriously.

According to Cybersecurity Ventures, 100% of Fortune 500 companies employed a CISO or equivalent position in 2023, up from 70% in 2018, with at least 32,000 CISOs working worldwide and more than 7,500 in the United States

CISOs are now more likely to engage directly with the CEO, and take on a broader scope and increased responsibilities, with greater strategic direction. According to a Gartner survey, nearly nine in 10 boards now view cybersecurity as a business risk rather than a technology risk.

Forbes takes an in-depth look at the CISO position and reveals who they are, what they do, how much they make, how they differ from a Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Chief Security Officer (CSO) , and more.
