<P>Praise for THE CISO EVOLUTION</p> <p>“As the former CISO of a Fortune 10 company, and later helping take a startup to Unicorn status, I can say this is a must-read for anyone in cybersecurity. The content is refreshing and applicable from the SOC analyst to the seasoned cybersecurity leadership team. We all need to understand how our work connects to business value. The prescriptive approach and techniques revealed in the detailed MBA-style case studies offer insights that you will not find in any other cybersecurity book that exists. Congrats to Matt and Rock for helping bond cybersecurity to business in a more intimate way than ever before! Go buy this book.” <p><b>—Malcolm Harkins, </b>Chief Security and Trust Officer, Epiphany Systems; former CISO, Intel and Cylance <p>“If you are a CISO or someone working to become one, and want to uplevel your executive communications skills and truly gain insights into running security risks like business, read this book. This is the first book that gives true examples that can help you actually see what others only talk about at the high level. Matt and Rock have done a great job sharing the intimate stories that have helped shape their great careers.” <p><b>Dave Hannigan, </b>Director, Product Security Assurance, Google Cloud <p>“This is a book that our industry has needed for a long time. Security skills and a fundamental understanding of modern technology is important. One could argue that for a CISO, it’s equally important — perhaps even more important — to understand how the business runs. To protect the value created by an organization, we must understand how that value is created in the first place. Thank you Matthew and Rock. Every security leader can benefit by reading this book.” <p> —Caroline Wong,</b> Chief Strategy Officer, Cobalt.io <p>“Transitioning from cybersecurity operator to investor and board member has reinforced for me that success in the CISO role is only available to those that can blend technical expertise, with business savvy. <i>The CISO Evolution</i> provides a timeless reference that combines predictive theories with compelling personal stories to convey a direct path to success. Those that skip this manuscript do so at their own peril. The competitive advantage this book provides makes it intellectual bedrock for future generations of cybersecurity leadership.” <p><b>Jay Leek,</b> Managing Partner and Co-founder of SYN Ventures, Board Director and former CISO <p>“One of the biggest blind spots for many CISOs today is understanding security’s role in the broader business framework of their company. Matt Sharp and Rock Lambros are experienced CISOs who walk the walk and have laid out very clearly how CISOs can become more influential in their company by understanding the fundamental executive leadership skills necessary for success. This book should have a place on every CISO’s bookshelf.” <p><B>—Mark Weatherford,</b> Chief Security Officer at the National Cybersecurity Center and former Deputy Undersecretary for Cybersecurity at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security <p>“The array of technical disciplines in security make it endlessly complex. This reality can be overwhelming for the new CISO, taking focus away from the business and its pursuit of opportunity. The CISO Evolution aims to solve that. It’s the mini-MBA we all need — but likely never had. I am honored to endorse Matt and Rock’s goals for the new (and not so new) CISO. They aim to give CISOs the tools we need so we can rightly take a seat at the executive (business) table.” <p><b>—Richard Seiersen,</b> CISO; author of<i> The Metrics Manifesto and How To Measure Anything In Cybersecurity Risk</i>
