Amazon Reviews

 A great book for taking your career to the next level.

If you want to be a leader in cybersecurity, I think this book can set you up to be one of the best in the industry.

Dr Ozkaya sets things up beautifully in this book, which is also just a pleasure to read. It begins by explaining the general role of a CISO, compares the role to the CIO and CTO, and describes a bit of the day to day, Then the book dives into regulations and frameworks, focusing on the important aspects like impact and applicability.
Then he takes readers through handling stakeholders, being the lead on incident handling and crisis, and setting the security culture and awareness for the company. There is strategy for building, fostering, and repairing security programs of all sizes and maturity. Ozkaya even spends a great chapter devoted to hiring, training, and leading people. I’d say he covers all the things I, Neal Bridges, Naomi Buckwalter, Christian Espinosa, Robert M. Lee, James J Azar, 👉🏼 Gerald Auger, Ph.D., and other great leaders in this space espouse about the right way to hire and invest in people.
The book closes out with some great insights from other CISOs on topics that are very important but don’t necessarily need their own chapter. Though, some of those topics actually can be expounded into whole works of their own.
It is a valuable read for anyone wanting to lead the cybersecurity team at an organization.
