Locked out

any companies nominally hiring CISOs seem to neither understand nor embrace the role and give it zero BSA (budget, staff and authority). Or they use the CISO in some purely technical capacity. Still others are hiring a CISO to check off compliance with some recently cemented regulation. Such a position amounts to someone hired to "sit on the bomb" so that when security inevitably blows up, there's a fall guy.
