Chief Security Information Officers (CISOs), says Roland Cloutier, are becoming “first and foremost business leaders.” The way he sees it, cybersecurity today is an important component of any business’ critical success factors. Cloutier calls the new discipline “operational risk management,” helping his company make good business decisions.
Cloutier is senior vice president and chief security officer at ADP, one of the world’s largest providers of business outsourcing solutions. Before joining ADP in 2010, he has held senior security-related positions at EMC and various consulting and managed security service organizations and served nine years in federal law enforcement. Cloutier was recognized by Security Magazine as one of the most influential people in security and is the author of Becoming a Global Chief Security Executive Officer: A How To Guide for Next Generation Security Leaders.
