"to whom do you think the CISO should report"

The CFO? I would just avoid CISO reporting CFO. Security should not be all about money.

"to whom do you think the CISO should report"

this is a good question, I personally would like to work for a company where this does not matter.

Cyber-Risk
One of the ways taking the risk to the executives is to provide examples, we can mention the companies hacked and fines they were charged.  That would get their attention.

Re: Reporting/communicating to whom?
Really good question. I'm actually got a blog post coming out on the F5Labs site on that very subject in the next few weeks. Sneak preview: The CISO should report outside of IT and as close to the top as they can to increase effective risk communication and maintain segregation of duties. And it seems the industry is heading in that direction.

Reporting/communicating to whom?
@Raymond, bearing these interests and issues in mind, to whom do you think the CISO should report in a typical organization so as to best give his/her office an appropriate platform, to be best understood, and to be best supported? The CIO? The CFO? the CEO? the General Counsel/CLO? the Board? Someone else?
