I am just leaving another Board of Directors (BoD) meeting and I am so thrilled for the CEO, CIO and Board.
This was another example of a CIO working very hard to deliver value to his BoD. I think he won because he adhered to four focus points:
- Radical Transparency always wins in IT Security.
- Courage and Truth trumps ego and bravado.
- Visualizing complexity and solution options beats words with non-technical smart people.
- Transparency without a ‘dig out’ plan of action is foolish.
