The Role of the CISO in Supporting Sustainability and Trust

By: Mark ChildResearch Manager, European Security


The security function is not typically top of mind when it comes to developing sustainable business practices. Operations, procurement, production, even human resources may be the primary focus for sustainability initiatives. But the CISO has a role to play as an enabler, to help the organization achieve its sustainability goals. This IDC perspective examines different ways that security leaders may play a role in helping their organizations to meet sustainability objectives.

"Sustainability is increasingly at the forefront of political discussion and is high on the radar of public awareness as well, fueled by media coverage of the impact of rising global temperature, climate change, pollution, and more. Sustainability concerns have also reached the commercial sphere, in some cases driven by genuine desire to reduce environmental footprint, in other cases by a pragmatic recognition that a negative image impacts brand reputation and the business bottom line. How can the security team contribute to sustainability initiatives?" — Research Manager Mark Child, IDC
