How to build trust between business and IT
by Brian Honan - CEO BH Consulting - Monday, 30 June 2014.
I worry about CSOs who claim lack of businesses understanding security is what is causing their security programs to fail. The CSO by definition is responsible for security in the organization, they are the one responsible for ensuring senior business people, and indeed every user in the organization, understands the importance of information security. If the CSO finds the organization is not responding to his leadership, then that CSO is the wrong person for that organization or indeed that organization may be the wrong one for the CSO.

At the end of the day being able to work with others is all about building relationships and relationships are based on establishing and maintaining trust. The most effective way to build trust is by clear and concise communication.
