What is cybersecurity in today's enterprise and what's the CIO's role?

The constant and quick evolution of security threats makes cybersecurity planning increasingly difficult for CIOs and IT leaders to manage effectively. It begs the question: What is cybersecurity in today's enterprise, exactly, and what is the CIO's role in ensuring it?
