The SEC case against SolarWinds and its CISO has been one of the most passionate topics all, spawning heated discussions in the hallways of CISOs across the country and globe, often bifurcating cybersecurity professionals into two opposing camps. One side declaring the SEC actions to be an affront to the role of CISOs, essentially unfairly targeting them and making their already difficult job unnecessarily more problematic. The other side typically states it is a matter where individuals broke the rules and are being held accountable, and this case is not forcing any specific set of security controls by public companies.
