Social-savvy CISOs share security scoops. Say that ten times fast.

Then jump over to Twitter, where members of the security community are actively posting news updates, industry trends, updates from events throughout the year, and their thoughts and opinions on all of the above.

We scoured our own Twitter feeds and conducted searches to find socially engaged CISOs and CSOs. These executives, who have years of experience in the industry, log on several times a week to share news, insights, guidance, and conversation with fellow infosec pros.

There are obviously far more than 14 active CISOs on Twitter and other forms of social media. This list - in no particular order - is only the beginning, and we'd like to continue adding names.

If you, or someone you know, is an socially engaged CISO, please add their name and handle in the comments. (We didn't include security vendor CISOs, but please share any you follow who should be noted).

I like using twitter for social media because although there are ads, it doesn't feel as forced as some of the other social media platforms. It also provides an easilible viewable timeline from which to review the posts of the people you are following.
