Chief security officer
The CSO generally serves as the business leader responsible for the development, implementation and management of the organization’s corporate security vision, strategy and programs. They direct staff in identifying, developing, implementing and maintaining security processes across the organization to reduce risks, respond to incidents, and limit exposure to liability in all areas of financial, physical, and personal risk; establish appropriate standards and risk controls associated with intellectual property; and direct the establishment and implementation of policies and procedures related to data security.
Digital security is involved in physical security. At many companies a CSO is the person responsible for IT security; the term CSO was first used principally to designate responsibility of IT security and is still used in this way.
