Originally published at www.linkedin.com.

Chief Information Security Officer.

Digital Jedi & company gatekeeper.

Awake when mortals are asleep.

Focusing on the digital vision & strategy.

Ensuring data isn’t cyber ripped.

Trained in advanced cyber combats.

Battling for the safety of digital assets.

Controls & monitors packets trips.

Scanning for all system threats.

Evangelising for best data practise.

Preaching for security awareness.

Educating the board on cyber risks.

Looking for systems vulnerabilities.

Surrounded by a team with abilities.

Looking for deadly payloads.

Formulating digital battle strategies.

And self defence methodologies.

On the road planning like a General.

Scanning the future like a marvel.

Conducting legal cyber wars in SOCs.

One step ahead of the bad guys in NOCs.

Fighting to stop abuse of apps flaws.

But baddies only need a single blow.

Truly challenging & daunting task.

With lots of racks full of cyber gear.

Waiting for enemies at the gate.

The CISO is the data-keeper.

The CISO is the CyberSecurity mastermind.

The CISO needs the best SecTeam!
