Shifting the CISO Reporting Structure. According to K logix, more than half of CISOs report to the chief information officer (CIO) while 15 percent report to the chief executive officer (CEO). The rest report to the chief operation officer (COO) or a risk management leade

CISO should report to COO or the CEO.

CEO not CIO... CISO and CIO often have conflicting priorities and metrics... the CIO measured on uptime will not want the CISO taking systems down to patch, etc.
