Call for Authors - CISO Handbook

 

Why do we need a handbook for CISOs?

  • There is no single consolidated source of comprehensive and precise operational knowledge which a CISO needs. 
  • CISOs need to browse through sea of information to find what is relevant for them.
  • CISOs need to have more insights from their peers and learn from each others experience. 

Vision of CISO Handbook

The vision of CISO handbook is to provide consolidatedcomprehensive and precise operational knowledge "By the CISO’s, For the CISO’s".

What “Lonely Planet” did for travelers, we aspire to do the same for the CISOs. We invite the CISO community to participate in realizing this dream.

As a part of the bigger goal of sharing knowledge we appeal to all CISOs to contribute generously towards this cause of benefiting the industry.
