The Emerging Role of the Chief Product Security Officer (CPSO)

You need a CPSO. Likely you’re wondering “why? and what’s a CPSO?” That is a problem. Millions of companies sell digital products, and security breaches are the largest monetary and reputation risk many companies face. So why aren’t there more Chief Product Security Officers? This talk will focus on discussing the role, how it differs from a CSO, why it’s a critical gap, and what skills it takes.

A Brief History of Cyber-SCRM

Classic logistics supply chain risk management (SCRM) has always been important, but our new digitally-driven, software enabled, globally sourced information communications technology (ICT) eco-system demands we all pay much closer attention to Cyber-SCRM.  This ISSA Cyber Executive Forum session will be reviewing what the USG and others have been doing to mitigate risks from their global supply chains, starting from pre- US Comprehensive National Cyber Security Initiative Task #11 (CNCI-SCRM) in the early 2000’s, thru 2017 US DHS Broad Operational Directive (BOD 17-01) on Kaspersky Anti-Virus and recent USG “bans” on Huawei and ZTE and more recent DHS/CISA’s new ICT-SCRM Task Force initiatives.

Additionally, the 2020 USG Cybersecurity Solarium Commission Report ( https://s.wsj.net/public/resources/documents/CSC%20Final%20Report.pdf ) calls for us to:  “RESHAPE THE CYBER ECOSYSTEM TOWARD GREATER SECURITY”; “…as technology supply chains have become more complex and global”; we must all, “Increase Support to Supply Chain Risk Management Efforts” and increase “Direct Investments for ICT Industrial Capacity and Trusted Supply”.
