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.
