Steve Katz, credited with being the first Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), sets the record straight on that honorific. He talks about what it was like being the first CISO, jesting that he slept like a baby, getting up every two hours and crying. 

In the first of a two part interview, Katz tells securitycurrent's Vic Wheatman how he sees the role of CISO, suggests a new title for it and proposes a process whereby business units would be required - in writing - to accept responsibility should they take risks that the CISO advises against. Katz now advises Deloitte in security and privacy and heads up Security Risk Solutions LLC.
