Publisher's Summary

An essential book for the modern technology driven organization narrated by the author
Authored by the only cybersecurity and healthcare IT leader in the world with 12 years' experience as Chief Information Officer, a Doctor of Science in the field, and the prestigious CISSP, PMP, and CPHIMS certifications.
Managing cybersecurity requires a multi-disciplinary holistic business approach. Many of the current cybersecurity approaches in organizations and most books are based on an outdated 1991 model of cybersecurity - focused solely on technology solutions. This book provides the 2014 model and shows why leadership engagement of people within an organization is critical for success. Culture development through leadership is essential because culture governs behavior. Apply the time tested principles explained in this book for success in any organization.
Today cybersecurity strategy is the same as information technology strategy. Cybersecurity drives the mission of the modern organization. Done right it can be a hallmark of distinction and a source of productivity and innovation in an organization. Failure to lead cybersecurity can easily lead to business failure. This book is an essential read for CIOs, CISOs, or any organizational business leader or student who wishes to understand how to build successful organizations. No prior background in cybersecurity or technology is required to understand this book.
In addition to 30 years of real world experience implementing organizational cybersecurity strategy, the author teaches cybersecurity to graduate students and executives at several US National Centers of Academic Excellence. The author is an opinion writer and conference speaker on cybersecurity, healthcare and leadership issues and is frequently quoted and cited in the media.

CIOs and CISOs should read this book...

What made the experience of listening to Cybersecurity Leadership the most enjoyable?

"Cybersecurity Leadership" is a holistic approach and roadmap for leaders to ponder and to follow as they strive to build a world class organization and an effective cyber program. Most of the lessons parallel what I've done in practice while others stimulate and almost mandate a lively conversation.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cybersecurity Leadership?

As I read the book, I had frequent flashbacks to my past experiences as the FBI CIO and as a Wall Street executive. The "Penguin Award" that I started at the FBI parallels the notion of inspiring calculated risk taking.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book.

A fresh look at leadership for a changing world.

This is not simply a book advising on cyber security tactics or choosing technology controls. Dr. Hasib takes us deeper into what it means to be a leader and clears away many misconceptions between leadership and management. Additionally, as ethics and integrity directly impact an organization's level of risk these traits are a common theme throughout his book. I highly recommend Cybersecurity Leadership for anyone functioning in a leadership role.
