Info

Recommendations if you are developing a job announcement or description for your institution:

  1. Review the sample CISO job description (below). Previous job postings from Princeton University and University of Albany are also available (in PDF format).
  2. Review the National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework published by NIST, which includes sample job titles and key tasks.
  3. Review the 2016 IT Workforce in Higher Education research hub for the most recent EDUCAUSE research on the evolving IT workforce needed to support contemporary models of IT service delivery.
  4. Consider alternative solutions, such as Bucknell University, Franklin & Marshall College, and Susquehanna University collaborating to create a joint CISO position among the three institutions. A non-higher ed example is Howard County, Maryland's HOCO CISO program, which provides "virtual" CISOs.
  5. For potential locations to post IT or information security job openings, visit the Career and Workforce Development chapter.
