2022 State of the CISO Report

by IANS + Artico

With the ongoing evolution of cybersecurity, the role of the CISO continues to transform and mature. For the top security position, no two roles are alike, and CISOs are keen to understand how their roles compare to those of their peers.

As part of our third annual CISO Compensation and Budget survey, jointly fielded with Artico Search, we collected first-party data from over 500 CISOs across the U.S. and Canada to help surface key information on CISO job satisfaction and job market dynamics.

  • See how many CISOs are open to job changes and understand the contributing factors.
  • Find contextual information on CISO's background and experience, reporting structures and organization rank.
  • Garner key market insights and anecdotes from leading cyber recruiters.
