The CSO, or Chief Security Officer, is like a superhero guarding a company’s treasures. They keep an eye on everything from people and finances to physical stuff and digital goodies.

What makes a CSO extra special? They’re not just about security—they also make sure cyber protection plays nice with the company’s business goals. Every security strategy, tactic, and program has to get the thumbs up from the CSO.

Picture the CSO as a tech-savvy Sherlock Holmes, always on the lookout for potential risks and devising clever strategies to outsmart them. With a trusty team of sidekicks, the CSO ensures the company’s virtual fortress remains impenetrable.

Oh, and sometimes they go by another name: CISO, or Chief Information Security Officer.
