was initially created in 2004 by Mike Gentile and Ron Collette as an information companion for the book “The CISO Handbook, A Practical Guide to Securing Your Company.” In the beginning, the core focus was primarily on tools that could help security managers or executives with the challenges and opportunities they faced in the performance of their daily jobs.

Over time, the emphasis of the site has shifted more and more to the concepts associated with Security Program Development. As a result, though the content is still geared to the security manager, the wider focus now enables value for security professionals of all levels within an organization.
